Join Bob Horton for the annual DVOC trip to Lakehurst Naval Air Station. The grasslands here are the best annual site in NJ for seeing the breeding displays of Upland Sandpipers. We also expect Grasshopper and Field Sparrows, Horned Lark, Eastern Meadowlark and in the pine forests, Pine Warbler. The site is also host to the hangar for the Hindenburg zeppelin which famously crashed and burned at the site in 1937.

Important: Participants MUST sign up by Wednesday, May 17. Please provide Bob Horton with your full name, drivers license number and state, and date of birth. To grant access to the base, the military needs this information two full weeks before the trip.

Each participant must be a US CITIZEN and will need a valid driver’s license or picture ID. Our stay in the Jump Zone grasslands will be 3 hours.
You must register with Bob Horton for this trip in advance. Email Bob at: This trip is limited to 20 people.

Meeting time: 7AM at the Cathedral of the Air parking lot in Lakehurst
Directions: Take Rte 70 to the center of Lakehurst. At the McDonalds and gas station, turn onto Rte 547. In about a mile, on the left there is a gray chapel named the Cathedral of the Air. We will car pool from this parking area under the supervision of John Joyce, the base Conservation Officer. Each car entering the base will need a vehicle registration card and proof of insurance.
