On the south side of Catchpole Road between Garlic Road and Brick Schoolhouse Road, Huckleberry Swamp is 79 acres of diverse, high quality wetlands that provide significant functions including storm water retention, groundwater recharge, wildlife habitat, and possibly rare plant habitat.  Resulting values include water quality improvement and opportunities for recreation, education and aesthetic appreciation (Environmental Design and Research, P.C. 1999).  
In Fall of 2001 we finished Phase 1 of construction of a wildlife observation deck and boardwalk that  meanders through a variety of wetland habitats including emergent marsh, Green Ash Wetland, and Red Maple Wetland.
