Black Run Preserve, Kettle Run, Marlton, NJ

The Preserve is traversed by numerous existing hiking trails and sand roads. Recreation opportunities include hiking, mountain biking, birdwatching, nature photography, geo-caching, and environmental education. Developed land directly leads to the degradation of water and habitat quality.

The Black Run watershed will only remain pristine if the headwaters area is protected from excessive development. State scientists have determined that the Black Run watershed can tolerate some additional housing development, but not too much, without suffering significant harm. So if the headwaters area is developed as current zoning permits, Evesham will lose several hundred acres of surviving forest, and the development will pollute the streams flowing through the Black Run Preserve and irreparably degrade the Preserve as habitat for Pinelands plants and wildlife.
