Dunes, Drawing and Dendrology is a new summer program, a thematic series of nature walks, talks, and art workshops, designed to encompass the various natural elements of Conference House Park.

The most distinctive natural feature of Conference House Park is the mile-and-a-half beachfront along the Raritan Bay and Arthur Kill waterways. These ever present bodies of water have shaped and influenced the Park environment for years. While the park's natural topography and features are constantly changing, none have experienced more change than the beachfront. Through the constant influence of the Raritan Bay, the shoreline has ebbed, flowed, and eroded while in some places expanded.

This family-friendly, educational walk and talk is designed to increase the appreciation and understanding of Conference House Park's waterfront environment: the signature bluffs, dunes, meadows, and wetlands. The walk will highlight some of the resiliency initiatives being undertaken to better protect and safeguard the shoreline from future severe weather events.
