It was a great day for a walk in Franklin Parker Preserve. It looks like the deer have over run the place, with hunking being allow this season. It’s sad that things have gotten so out of balance, but nature will correct it soon.
This expansive property, New Jersey Conservation Foundation’s largest, encompasses 15 square miles in the heart of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. It is accessible by a network of sandy roads that wind though pitch pine forest and blueberry fields, and run along the preserve’s cedar swamp, shallow lakes and pristine tributaries of the West Branch of the Wading River.
