Black Run Preserve in Evesham Township is a critical headwater area for the southwest branch of the Rancocas Creek. The Rancocas’ 360 square mile watershed includes about one-third of the land area in Burlington County and is key to the health of the larger Delaware River estuary.
Pinelands Preservation Alliance has been an advocate for ongoing protection of the Black Run Preserve and was a founding organization for the Friends of Black Run Preserve. Today, the preserve is not only important for water supply protection and habitat to unique Pinelands plants and animals, but it has become one of southern New Jersey’s most popular destinations for hiking, wildlife observation and mountain biking.
