“West Brook Preserve Restoration Project
West Milford, New Jersey”

The West Brook Preserve is one of the most important watershed properties remaining in the State of New Jersey and contains the source of the West Brook, one of the primary sources of water for the Wanaque Reservoir, which provides drinking water for two million New Jersey residents. The preserve contains a valley with steep rocky hillsides, vast wetlands, and a Category One trout production stream (a New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection designation indicating clean, high-quality water).

Restoration work was completed in August 2020, and the preserve with newly blazed trails will be open to the public soon! Check back here for updates.
