New Jersey Conservation Foundation developed Garden State Greenways in 2001 with Rutgers University and the Green Acres Program. Garden State Greenways is a map identifying the important natural resources - grasslands, forests, dunes, agricultural soils, wetlands - remaining in New Jersey. Greenways include hubs, or concentrations of land, and linear corridors connecting these hubs. Linking hubs of nature protects the ecological integrity of these natural areas.

Garden State Greenway maps also show where preserved open space and farmlands are located throughout the state. Existing and proposed trails are available on the maps as well as abandoned railroad corridors. Garden State Greenways is a good first step in planning investments in open space preservation and developing land preservation plans. It is a "greenprint" for New Jersey's green infrastructure - land that will protect clean air, clean water and diverse plant and animal habitats into the future.
