Catch Pokemon And Enjoy Nature In Chester

Attention, Pokemon Go fans! Join the search for Pokemon – and real New Jersey wildlife – at New Jersey Conservation Foundation’s Pokemon Nature Hike on Tues., Aug. 30, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Naturalist and Pokemon Go player Bill Lynch will lead hikers on trails from the Bamboo Brook Outdoor Education Center to the Willowwood Arboretum in search of Pokémon and actual wildlife found in New Jersey’s meadows and forests.

The hike is free, and advance registration is requested. To register online, go to

There will be plenty of time for both Pokemon and learning about nature.

“We’ll start by setting lures at the Pokéstops at Bamboo Brook,” said Lynch. “After exploring the gardens and catching Eevees and Bellsprouts, we’ll begin our hike. For this portion of the walk we’ll put our phones away and look for the birds, butterflies, snakes, and other critters. When we get to Willowood we’ll set more lures, explore the beautiful gardens there, and then return.”
