Citizen Science
Lower Raritan and Arthur Kill

These projects were created in a collaborative effort between New Jersey Audubon and Raritan Valley Community College, funded through National Audubon’s and Toyota’s TogetherGreen program.

Despite the environmental pressure to which they have been subjected, the Raritan River and Arthur Kill watersheds provide important fishery and migratory bird habitats. Bird species include hawks, passerines, waterfowl, loons, grebes and shorebirds. The federally listed piping plover and peregrine falcon have also been found here. Threats to this system include extreme pressure from commercial and residential developments.
