Working to protect, enhance and expand
Located in Denville, New Jersey
Jonathan’s Woods has become a community asset. People from many of the surrounding towns hike, bike, walk dogs, even ride horses on the trails. The wildflowers and migratory birds in the spring are a magnet for garden clubs and birders.
We are a not-for-profit conservation organization and land trust based in Denville, New Jersey. Our mission is to protect the wetlands, woodlands and potable water supplies throughout the Beaver Brook watershed in Denville, Rockaway and Boonton Townships. We identify and support land acquisition, provide site stewardship and offer public education programs.
DID YOU KNOW?
OF OPEN SPACE
To date POWWW in partnership with NJ Fish and Wildlife, the Morris County Park Commission, the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority (MCMUA), Denville Township and Green Acres has acquired 635 acres of open space that will be preserved in perpetuity for passive recreation.
POWWW creates and maintains trails within Jonathon's Woods through diverse habitats.
The hiking trails and forest at Jonathan’s Woods provide a direct connection to the 3,000+ acres of open space of Wildcat Ridge WMA in Rockaway Township, creating a vital greenway for wildlife.
