East Point Lighthouse
Maurice River Township, NJ
The East Point Lighthouse has played an important part in the maritime history of the Maurice River area of Cumberland County, New Jersey. Originally known as the Maurice River Lighthouse, it was erected in 1849 by the United States Lighthouse Establishment. The present name was initiated in 1913. Although numerous lighthouses once stood along the edge of the Delaware Bay, East Point is the last one remaining on the Jersey side.

The Glades Wildlife Refuge
Located along the Delaware Bay in Downe Township, Cumberland County. The Glades Wildlife Refuge is a conservation project of the Natural Lands Trust, a regional land trust based in Media, Pennsylvania and is approximately 5,300 acres. Although predominately characterized as saltmarsh and broad leaf swamp forest, the Glades Wildlife Refuge is rich in ecological diversity.

Manumuskin River Preserve
Manumuskin River Preserve is more than 3500 acres and the largest Conservancy preserve in New Jersey. This preserve was established to protect the globally rare plant, sensitive joint-vetch, Aeschymnome virginica. The population of sensitive joint-vetch along the Manumuskin River is the largest, healthiest stand in the world. The preserve also hosts other rare plants, animals, and plant communities mainly due to the pristine water quality and undisturbed nature of the area. Fifteen of New Jersey's threatened and endangered species of birds breed in the Manumuskin River Basin.

Maurice River
The Maurice River corridor is an unusually pristine Atlantic Coastal river with national and internationally important resources. As part of the Atlantic flyway, its clean waters and related habitats are vitally important to the migration of shorebirds, songbirds, waterfowl, raptors, rails, and fish. Other important resources include a rare and endangered joint vetch, shortnose sturgeon and striped bass, and a pre-historic settlement site.
