4/24/18 Part of Liberty State Park (LSP) is threatened with Commercial Development by an expansion of the private Liberty National Golf Course.  Specifically a 21 acres Bird Sanctuary called Caven Point would be destroyed to make way for additional golf fairways.  Attached is a letter from the Conservancy to the DEP opposing this loss of green space in LSP.

To date, the new Murphy administration in Trenton has not acted on the request. We are hopeful that they will see the tragedy in destroying the bird sanctuary.

John Dunstan, a local photographer, has created a film that dramatically shows why Caven Point needs to remain undisturbed as part of LSP.  You can watch the film at https://vimeo.com/240773305.

The Friends of Liberty State Park will hold a rally supporting the retention of Caven Point as a Bird Sanctuary on Sunday, May 19th, from 11AM to noon, on the Walkway in front of the Golf Course.  See details here.

Please support this important environmental effort by contacting the State Officials and/or joining us on May 19th.
