Description

Friends for the Abbott Marshlands are a group of volunteers working under the auspices of D&R Greenway Land Trust in support of stewardship and protection of the Abbott. The Abbott Marshlands includes the Tulpehaking Nature Center, which offers a multitude of educational and recreational programs for all ages. It is listed among New Jersey Watershed Groups and Partners by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection.

Since 2002, the Friends volunteers have organized and sponsored a variety of programs with the intent of educating people about the unique nature and history of the marshlands and encouraging protection and stewardship.  Programs have included field and canoe trips, trail maintenance and clean-up activities, symposia, nature walks and Voices for the Marsh juried photography shows. In 2020 the Friends formed a NJ corporation and they received their federal 501(c)(3) non profit designation in 2021.  The Friends are managed by a Board of Directors.
