Leasing Caven Point would be disaster; Area should remain natural | Feedback
Caven Point a critical natural habitat
I have just written the NJ Department of Environmental Protection to implore the Office of Leases to keep Caven Point (in Liberty State Park) as a natural wilderness area. It would be disastrous to lease it to Liberty National Golf Course for any length of time. Currently managed as protected wildlife habitat, Caven Point includes one of the last relatively undisturbed marsh areas of the Hudson River Estuary and a long natural beach.
Being off limits to people (and their dogs) from March 1 through September, the Point provides critical and unique habitat for wildlife in the area because it is relatively undisturbed. These existing benefits, which will get only more valuable as time passes, need to be factored into any land-use planning for the area.
