Map of the Sourlands

Strategic Plan

The Sourlands has the greatest block of contiguous forest habitat in the State’s Piedmont province. Available biological data and pertinent scientific and historic literature highlight the unique attributes that make the Sourlands so important as habitat, including:

Geologic conditions caused the Sourland region to be largely avoided by European settlers throughout American history but new technologies, developed after World War II, have it made it increasingly possible for residential development to occur there.  As development continues to be directed away from farmland and other fragile ecological areas like the Highlands to the north and the Pinelands to the south, increasing pressure has mounted to develop the relatively small but fragile Sourland area.  Its need for protection is clear.

This Strategic Plan is prepared as a guide to the Sourland Conservancy for actions that will allow us to provide the greatly needed protection.
