1. The Silver Brook Gateway Marker
Inscription. This 15 acre property was purchased by Harding Township and the Harding Land Trust in 2003 in partnership with the Morris County Open Space Preservation Trust and the State of New Jersey Green Acres program. It is a key link in the Silver Brook environmental greenway. Exceptional wetlands and woods flank the brook, providing homes for a rich diversity of flora and fauna. Just across the bridge along James Street, The Harding Land Trust's wetland enhancement project is improving habitat for a species of turtle. Conservation easements along Silver Brook and the banks of Silver Lake protect the quality of this important Great Swamp water source.
