Wander One of the Foundation’s Newest Parcels
Slab Meadow was acquired in 2015, increasing the Foundation by 40 acres and almost 2 miles of trails. The trails were blazed in the fall of 2015 and now all we need is to add YOU! The parcel is peppered with vernal pools and features a beautiful overlook onto a nearby marsh. Have your eyes and ears at the ready for frogs this spring especially Wood Frogs, Green Frogs, Spring Peepers, and Bull Frogs. The mature oak stands promise to produce an abundance of other wildlife including Pileated Woodpeckers, Red-eyed Vireos, and Eastern Coyote. Trailheads are located on Slab Meadow Rd. in Morris, 1/2 mile east of S.R. 109. View a Trail Map here. Trails are accessible for hiking, bicycling, cross-country skiing, horseback riding, but not to motor vehicles. All other property usage rules apply. We’ll be adding this parcel, as well as other recent property acquisitions, to a new edition of our Property Map soon.
