Blair Creek Preserve is the eastern anchor of Bobcat Alley, a forested corridor in Northwestern New Jersey that connects the Appalachian and the Highland mountain ranges. This preserve helps form an uninterrupted greenway with the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and other protected forested lands. The preserve protects the headwaters of Blair Creek which, in turn, helps provide the clean waters needed for trout fishing and drinking water downstream.
What TNC Has Done/Is Doing
The original 480-acre purchase was completed by a partnership of the Ridge and Valley Conservancy, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, and The Nature Conservancy. TNC continues to actively purchase nearby lands to add to the preserve.
