    Industries in the Pines---Small Group Bus Tour

    The Pine Barrens are a post-industrial forest. It has been said that by 1850 no trees existed between the Delaware River and the Atlantic Ocean due to over harvesting and industry in the Pine Barrens region. While such a claim is slightly exaggerated, it is difficult to imagine that the pine wilderness was once a major industrial center. Evidence of bygone eras still lie hidden along the quiet stream beds and below the thick patches of wild huckleberry. We will make several stops to explore on foot.

    The Pine Barrens of New Jersey contain more ghost towns, some say, than the entire America west. The Pinelands of today with its pristine woodlands and unique plant and animal communities, is a very different place than the busy industrial center it once was several hundred years ago. Barbara Solem, author of Ghost Towns and Other Quirky Places in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, will take participants on a tour of many of the forgotten industrial towns that once thrived in the Pine Barrens.
