Nature Walk at Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary Rescheduled Because of Road Work

Sunnyside Road will be closed on Monday, Oct. 22 and Tuesday, Oct. 23 so that culverts under the road can be replaced. The weekly nature walk at Mariton has been rescheduled for Wednesday at 9 a.m.

Williams Township  has tentative plans to close Sunnyside Road in Easton (above County Line Road East) on October 22 and 23, between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. You won’t be able to drive up the road to Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary during this period. 

This project, replacing culverts under the road, is weather dependent and may be rescheduled to other days during next week.

If you are planning a trip to Mariton to walk the trails, it would be worth a call to check on the status of the road work. The number for the Natural Lands Trust office at Mariton is 610 258 6574.

Natural Lands Trust is tentatively rescheduling next week’s regular Nature Walk at Mariton to Wednesday, October 24 at 9 a.m. Please call preserve manager Tim Burris at the Mariton office or email him at tburris@natlands.org to register.

You can also join Tim the following week for the Nature Walk at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30. The walks are free and open to the public. For more information about Mariton Wildlife Preserve, please visit natlands.org
