Maurice Wild and Scenic River

A total of 35.4 miles of the Maurice River were designated as Wild and Scenic on December 1, 1993. In addition to the Maurice, designation included the Manumuskin, Menantico, and Muskee tributaries. Located in New Jersey, this system is a critical link between the Pinelands National Reserve and the Delaware Estuary. One of the outstanding resources on the Maurice is as part of the Atlantic Flyway that supports important habitat for migrating birds, including endangered species. The Maurice River is vital for the migration of birds, waterfowl, rails, and fish.
