Fun is a major part of every visit to The Wetlands Institute, as everything here combines both education and entertainment!

Every visit begins with Marion’s gardens, award winning gardens which surround the parking lot and line the walkway to the main building. You will pass hundreds of native plants, each chosen to attract birds and butterflies.

We are open all Winter for self-guided tours of all the Institute’s facilities. In the Summer, we offer complete guided tours, as well as back bay boat rides, kayaking, live animal shows, family entertainment and guided beach & dune walks. Visit our events section for more information on schedules.

  • We spent the day here. We actually did the kayak tour of the Intercoastal Waterway and Bay. It was super informative and you can't beat the views!  more »
  • This is a great place, so much to see. We were there 2 hours and could have stayed more. During certain times the release turtles into the marsh. Definitely a place to stop.  more »

  • I had a lovely experience at The Wetlands Institute. Ms. Sue was very knowledgeable.
  • Always a cool place to check out birds & the wetlands in general, great nature spot in a very nature centric part of New Jersey. Very well cared for. I was there recently for a DIY wedding (didn't know they accommodated that as a space) it was a great location for something like that.
