Into the Wild

posted 7 years ago

The Negri-Nepote Native Grassland Preserve was purchased in 2003 by Franklin Township. This 164 acre property is between Skillmans Lane to the east, Bennetts Lane to the north, and the Six-mile Run Reservoir site to the west and south. There are 111 acres of grassland and 53 acres of woodland. The handicapped trail was built in the summer of 2008 by Boy Scouts and it runs from the parking lot to a wildlife viewing blind. If you are lucky you may see the Grasshopper Sparrow, Cooper’s Hawk, Eastern Meadowlark and American Kestrel as well as Wood Ducks, Bluebirds and Purple Martins. A checklist of birds and butterflies can be had by downloading a PDF file from NJ Audubon's website.

Pros: Handicap-accessible path

Cons: none

Best dog park I have been to so far in NJ... not that we go a lot. Exercise caution as not all owners are as dog smart as they think they are.
