northern "outlier" of the Pine Barrens



Here's some information I've been looking for for a long time. It's about a place up in Middlesex County called Helmetta. There's a pond there and I believe a cedar swamp. I just found this online information about it. Here's the quote:

Jamesburg Park

Location: Helmetta Boulevard-Old Stage Road; East Brunswick, Helmetta and Monroe

Acreage: 1479 Acres

Facilities: None - Conservation Area

This is the first conservation area purchased by Middlesex County in the early 1970's.

Its primary purpose is to protect the underground resources of the Old Bridge Sands acquifer. Just as important is the area's significance as the northernmost outlier of the New Jersey Pine Barrens, and the flora and fauna habitats it protects. There are specimens of endangered species within this preserved open space.

This is one of those places I'd like to visit one day.
Here's the URL to the main site I got the info from:
Here's another site:
These Pine Barrens outliers are also known as Pine Barrens islands.
There is supposed to be at least one southern outlier down in Salem County (or Cumberland- I forget)
