Hillsborough Parks Get a Biodiversity Boost

Hillsborough Township falls within one of New Jersey’s most unbroken agricultural blocks – important both to local heritage and to the many rare grassland bird species (like the vesper sparrow and the meadowlark) whose lives are delicately dependent on farming. The Sourland Mountains also sweep northward into Hillsborough, with great significance to forest wildlife, migrating songbirds, human residents and recreationists. To help make the most of these open spaces and deep-dark places, Conserve Wildlife Foundation has worked with Hillsborough to design wildlife habitat projects and find grants to fund them.
