State parks are spread thin along the overdeveloped Inner Coastal Plain. But one struggling park, Rancocas, has allied itself with the nonprofit New Jersey Audubon Society. When budget cuts in the 1970s forced the 1,100-acre park to close, the New Jersey Audubon Society stepped in. It established a fine nature center in an old farmhouse and built a Nature Trail exploring a portion of the park’s fields, lowland deciduous forest, freshwater streams, and marshes. The New Jersey Audubon Society is a privately supported group that has preserved 2,200 acres statewide within thirty nature sanctuaries, all open to the public.
