Cherry Hill Becomes NJ’s 5th Community Wildlife Habitat

Cherry Hill has several hiking trails throughout the community that are maintained and improved by community volunteers

Cherry Hill has long been a leader in municipal sustainability in New Jersey. A Sustainable Jersey Silver Certified Community since 2010, Cherry Hill was among the first towns in the state to adopt its own municipal sustainability plan. Our trail system includes 11 trails throughout the township including woodland, meadow and marshlands. With support from NJ Audubon, Cherry Hill Environmental Board launched our initiative to become a certified Community Wildlife Habitat in the spring of 2020. With the help of our residents and businesses, we accomplished this goal in the fall of 2021. We are now one of only 6 certified Community Wildlife Habitats in the state of NJ. We would like to urge any residents who have not already done so to consider joining our effort by registering their own backyard or balcony as Certified Wildlife Habitat which is a national recognition by the National Wildlife Federation and NJ Audubon.

Our community has over 300 Certified Wildlife Habitats.
Many members of our community have become involved with the program and each year even more join in the effort.
