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.
