In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day, The Land Conservancy of New Jersey launched their newly created interactive map on their website: www.tlc-nj.org. The map identifies each of the properties we have helped to permanently protect, from Stokes State Forest in northern Sussex County to the Musconetcong Valley in southern Warren County. Take a tour of the breathtaking lands that the Conservancy has helped to preserve over the past 13 years!
We have preserved land to sustain our water supplies, ensure the availability of locally grown produce, and to offer opportunities for hiking, sports, and fishing! Easy to use click on a pin and see the property preserved by The Land Conservancy of New Jersey!
