Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge

Congressman Frelinghuysen continues to devote attention to the Great Swamp Wildlife Refuge.  Swamp woodland, hardwood ridges, cattail marshes, grasslands, ponds and meandering streams characterize this 7,600 acre National Wildlife Refuge. The protection  of  this  gem  of  wilderness  in  the  heart of  dense  suburban  development  is one  of  the  success stories of our National Wilderness Preservation System.  Every year, opportunities arise from willing sellers to purchase additional lands to add to the Refuge and preserve as open space.  Congressman Frelinghuysen has worked tirelessly to ensure that there are funds available to make those purchases happen.
