Warren County Landowner Gives 31-Acre Property to Conservation Efforts

Iā€™d recommend to any owner of acres of undeveloped, unspoiled land the donation of a conservation easement to a private institution or governmental body that can be counted on to enforce its terms. Such donations, carried out under the guidance of The Land Conservancy of New Jersey, not only protect precious woods, fields, and wetlands, but promote intelligent development elsewhere by combating sprawl.
— Benjamin Gerson, who preserved his large property

The owner of a 31-acre stretch of land in Warren County has given his property to nature conservation organizations to be guaranteed protection and maintenance of the land. With the state's rapidly-expanding manufacturing industry, it's important that land is set aside to take in animals such as box turtles, bobcats, salamanders, and owls, whose habitats are destroyed.
