NEW JERSEY AUDUBON'S RIPARIAN RESTORATION PROJECTS 

SWDR contributor, New Jersey Audubon, has planted over 1,900 native trees and shrubs on stream banks and buffer areas along the Paulin’s Kill River and the Musconetcong River. The plantings will benefit water quality, soil health, floodplains, and habitat for birds, trout, Wood Turtles, and other species.

The projects are part of the Delaware River Watershed Initiative (DRWI). New Jersey Audubon contracts with the NJ Youth Corps of Phillipsburg to do these restoration projects, helping youth develop work skills in ecological restoration and environmental science.

Learn more on New Jersey Audubon's Stewardship Blog. If you're a NJ landowner interested in support for conservation projects on your property, contact NJ Audubon Stewardship Project Director, John Parke.

Want to get out in nature? Take a hike and enjoy the birds at NJ Audubon's Old Farm Sanctuary and Wattles Stewardship Center.
