Preserving Open Land

D&R Greenway Land Trust recently purchased the three-acre Koch property on Stony Brook Road in Hopewell adjacent to Cedar Ridge, one of its earliest and largest preserves at more than 200 acres. The new property has 650 feet of frontage on a key tributary stream of the Stony Brook. Here, volunteers from the Princeton area’s Ernest Schwiebert Chapter of Trout Unlimited stand behind debris recently removed from the property. Since its founding 30 years ago, D&R Greenway has permanently preserved 20,865 acres, including 31 miles of trails open to the public. (Photo courtesy of D&R Greenway)
