Township of Readington, Hunterdon County, New Jersey

Readington’s Wildlife

Preservation of large tracts of farmland and open space has provided the diverse habitats necessary to fostering the diverse wildlife population found throughout the Township.   The developing Readington recreational trail system on preserved open space, as well as sometimes our own backyards, provide real opportunities to view this wildlife in its natural environment.

Residents Mary Beth and Bruce Michael have generously provided us with a collection of outstanding photos of 36 different species of birds, turtles, insects, fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and vegetation they have observed in Readington.
