Jane Tousman, Raritan Valley Conservation Advisor and the NJ Sierra Club's National Delegate, has been working for many years to preserve the Dismal Swamp, which is one of the last remaining wetlands in a highly urbanized environment. The Dismal Swamp (located in Edison, Metuchen, and South Plainfield) is 660 acres and is designated a "priority wetland" by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Unfortunately, this beautiful property, an area of unique ecological value, is again under threat of development.
