This grant will allow the Readington Township Open Space Advisory Board to start development of a 23 acre site as “learning woods” to provide the community with examples of woodland benefits to society and the environment and the value of sustaining woodlands.  Unique trees and ecological features will be identified and a deer exclosure area built.  In addition, paths and benches will be installed connecting forest features and supporting community education activities.
