Hoffman Road Wetland Preserve
In partnership with the US Army Corps of Engineers and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, GTA is permanently protecting and restoring nearly 40 acres of habitat at our Hoffman Road Wetland Preserve in Monroe, New Jersey. This important wetland preserve is within GTA’s Hudson-Raritan Estuary Conservation Focus Area.
The property is dominated by existing high-quality forested and scrub/shrub wetlands and intact vernal pools, draining to Manalpan Brook. The Freehold Secondary rail line, a right-of-way targeted for future rail-to-trail conversion, bounds the Hoffman Preserve, which lies within the Jamesburg-Spotswood Pinelands Outlier habitat ( the northernmost area of New Jersey Pine Barrens habitat).
