Sstephen J. Novak


Preservation efforts are under way for land along the Musconetcong River in Mansfield Township and the shores of the Delaware River in West Amwell Township, according to announcements made last week by two environmental groups.

The New Jersey Audubon Society received 51 acres in the Musconetcong area that adjoin 301 acres already owned and preserved by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Warren County.

The DEP announced it will also protect 213 acres known as the Goat Hill Overlook property along the Delaware River in Hunterdon County.
