The 90-square-mile Sourland region is home to the largest contiguous forest in Central New Jersey.  The sparsely populated area includes parts of Somerset, Hunterdon and Mercer counties, and encompasses a complex ecosystem of forest, wetlands and grasslands.  Its mosaic of habitats is home to an incredibly rich diversity of animal and plant species, many rare or endangered.  The forest is especially important as a breeding area for migratory songbirds, particularly those who nest only in large wooded areas.
