Abbott Marshlands

The Abbott Marshlands is composed of 3,000 acres of wetlands and uplands located on the western edge of central New Jersey just below Trenton. The diverse habitats – freshwater tidal and non-tidal marshes and swamps, ponds, and woodlands – are home to many kinds of plants and animals, as well as several historic sites.

D&R Greenway has been active in protecting the Abbott Marshlands for 25 years. Working with partners, we were instrumental in establishing Mercer County’s Tulpehaking Nature Center, where you can learn about the archaeological, historic, and natural treasures of the Marsh. Visit the Marsh website or TravelStorys GPS to learn more about this local treasure, or click here to view an aerial video of the Marsh.

D&R Greenway and the Tulpehaking Nature Center are members of the
Alliance for Watershed Education, supported by The William Penn Foundation
