The Franklin Parker Preserve:
This spectacular 15 square-mile preserve was acquired and is managed by the New Jersey Conservation Foundation and lies in the very heart of the Pine Barrens. There are more than 20 miles of marked trails through a variety of Pine Barrens settings and habitats. A former cranberry farm, the preserve contains some of the most beautiful wetlands in the Pine Barrens and provides critical habitat to more than 50 rare, threatened or endangered species. The Franklin Parker Preserve contains approximately 5,000 acres of wetlands habitat and 4,400 acres of contiguous upland pine oak forest, as well as 14 tributaries that cross the preserve and eventually unite in the Wading River, one of the most popular sites for canoeing in the Pine Barrens.
