More About Drexel Woods and The Lawrence Nature Center
Purchased in the 1990s for open space, Drexel Woods covers 45 acres of forest and meadow and features a stream and network of trails for passive reaction and nature study. Located at the end of Drexel Avenue, near Fernwood Lane, is the Lawrence Nature Center. The center was once the home of Carl and Lucille Rinck, who planted many exotic trees on their 9-acre plot and taught neighborhood children about the different birds that lived in the woods. The township purchased the Rinck property after the couple died without an heir. Renovated by the township Recreation Department, the center is now used for school nature programs such as Earth Day, educational seminars and other community events.
