  • Overview

    Home to the Raritan Headwaters Association. A former dairy farm, the 170-acre property now serves as a living laboratory. Habitat restoration projects and scientific studies are underway across the site to support native flora and fauna, including a number of threatened and endangered species.

    There are five miles of trails through fields and woods, a small pond, butterfly garden, restored 1800's era barn complex and RHA's office building. Passive recreational pursuits – nature walks, bird watching, photography, painting en plen aire, nature-journaling, catch and release fishing – can all be enjoyed on the property.

    Open every day from dawn until dusk.
