This protected parcel, named as a tribute to the family who donated this land for preservation in 1991, is now surrounded by several hundred acres of the NJ Division and Wildlife’s Great Egg Harbor River WMA, Folsom section. Combined, these areas protect important wetlands that support the nearby Great Egg Harbor River. The typical pine forest upland alternates with wetlands of Atlantic white cedar. This area has historic records for the endangered pine snake. Now, with a large block of protected lands and a maturing forest, the area will become better suited for these rare snakes as well as other wildlife.
Visitors are welcome to explore the remote area for hiking and birding opportunities. Since the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife has a strong enforcement presence at the adjoining Wildlife Management Area, the Trust allows for deer hunting at this preserve without the need for registration. Access to the site is best available from the Wildlife Management Area.
