Opps...

SORRY FOLKS....

We have become aware that on Sunday, March 31, the NJ Herald inadvertently advertised in their "Local" section, the Basic Self-defense Workshop offered by the Friends of High Point State Park as taking place Monday, April 1.

However, the workshop took place as scheduled on Saturday, March 30. We apologize for any confusion and inconvenience this error may have caused. The Friends of High Point State Park hope to offer this workshop again in the future.

Thank you for your interest in our programs. Please visit our Save the Date - Upcoming Programs and Events page for our 2013 program calendar. We hope to see you on the mountain again soon!
