Along the Delaware Bayshore

By Linda Tancs

Heislerville, New Jersey is a Cumberland County town along the Delaware Bayshore offering a wildlife refuge with scenic views of salt water impoundments, the Maurice River, and large mudflats that provide varied habitat for wading birds, shorebirds and waterfowl.  Located at Matts Landing Road, the eight-mile auto-trail driving loop offers something for every seasonal preference.  Summertime brings waders, shorebirds, and Black Skimmer to the impoundments. Look for roosting egrets in the trees on the islands as well as diamondback terrapins.  While you’re in the area, visit the East Point Lighthouse, built in 1849 at the mouth of the Maurice River.
