About Helen C. Fenske Visitor Center

The Helen C. Fenske Visitor Center is located at 32 Pleasant Plains Rd., Harding Township, NJ. It is open on Thursday and Friday from noon to 4 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Exhibits demonstrate the variety of habitats and wildlife that can be seen at Great Swamp NWR as well as the history of this Refuge that makes it so special to this area.

The Discovery Den has educational and entertaining activities for children. During cold winter days it is not uncommon for families to come to the visitor center to get out of their homes and enjoy the various activities.

Certainly one of the highlights has been the addition of the wonderful quilt donated to the Friends by Marcia Rymer. The quilt incorporates the birds and flowers that meant so much to Marcia, stitched onto or into the quilt. It has a permanent home in the library and never ceases to amaze visitors. It truly is a work of art.
