One of the best wildlife children’s attractions in NJ is the Pequest Trout Hatchery. It is a natural resource education center that provides children and adults opportunities to learn about New Jersey’s wildlife. The hatchery is responsible for stocking public waters in NJ with different kinds of trout each year. Learn all about this interesting process and take self-guided tours along the hiking trains that are complete with interactive displays, picnic areas and free educational literature. The hatchery also offers scheduled free educational programs year-round. Free pamphlets, coloring books and educational reading materials are available at the visitor’s center.
