D&R Greenway Land Trust is central New Jersey's nonprofit land preservation organization, founded in 1989 through the collaboration and vision of four organizations: the Stony Brook - Millstone Watershed Association, Friends of Princeton Open Space, Regional Planning Partnership, and the Delaware & Raritan Canal Commission. Founders, including Jim Amon, Rosemary Blair, Dennis Davidson, Sam Hamill, and Bob Johnston, realized that our region's open space was threatened with extinction.
The D&R Greenway permanently preserves watershed lands and large-scale landscapes, thereby preventing the loss of open space to development. The operating region consists of over 1,500 square miles, encompassing portions of the Delaware, Raritan and Millstone River watersheds and the Delaware & Raritan Canal.
The Johnson Education Center
Opened in April 2006, the Johnson Education Center serves as a venue for lectures, panel discussions and professional workshops designed to raise awareness about the importance of protecting land and our environment, and the local, regional and even global benefits of doing so. Through activities at the Johnson Education Center, D&R Greenway works to promote a sustainable conservation ethic that results in a public commitment to land preservation.
The center houses an impressive native plant nursery, offers walking, jogging and birding trails. They also offer educational seminars, event rental space, and host exhibitions and events. For more information, visit their web site listed below.
