Overview:
The Teetertown Ravine Nature Preserve’s 147 acres were acquired to protect one of the most significant natural areas in Hunterdon County. This park offers the solitude of a densely wooded area, including a variety of hardwoods, shrubs, and animal life, and the contrast of a spectacular rushing stream winding its way through the Ravine’s dramatic rock outcroppings. In 1999, the adjoining property, which is now called Mountain Farm Section, was purchased, raising the total acreage to 302. The additional property adds large fields and two ponds to the diversity of the park. Rare birds, such as Bobolinks, have been seen here, and volunteers maintain a Bluebird trail.
