Moorestown’s Preserved Open Spaces (from the STEM web site)   

Over the decades since 1972, STEM has undertaken a wide range of ambitious projects to preserve, protect, and maintain the health of Moorestown’s open space and farmland, including the development of a Natural Resources Inventory, the preparation of an Open Space Inventory, and the establishment of the Natural Area Care (NAC) program.

STEM’s cooperative efforts with local, county, and state bodies have led directly to the preservation of over 275 acres of land within Moorestown. Such partnering with government committees, land trusts, local watershed associations, and like-minded area groups is central to STEM’s philosophy.

As of 2009, twelve Open Space sites have been preserved. Once preserved, each open space is commemorated by the commissioning of a banner by a local artist. The distinctive banners may be displayed at various township events and will be on permanent display in the new Town Hall.
