Halloween Fun Galore

Bhhhawwaaahahaha!
It’s that time of year….

Jack-o-lanterns blink their scary lights,
And ghosts pop out in the creepy night.

Moon-lit trails become spooky and dark,
And costumed storytellers greet you in the park.

For Halloween fun that does not fail,
CLICK HERE, and follow the trail.

White-tailed deer management

The Morris County Park Commission is currently responsible for the stewardship of over 18,000 acres of land. It recognizes that a controlled hunting program is the most efficent and affective way available to minimize the severe threats posed to the biodiversity of native flora and fauna by overabundant ehite-tailed deer populations. The MCPC's controlled hunts are specifically used as a population management tool and do not represent recreational hunting opportunities.
