Wildlife Signs

GINLC, together with the Open Space Committee, approached the township, suggesting the installation of some "wildlife crossing" signs along the south end of East River Road to alert drivers of smaller animals crossing the street from one wetland to another. In the past too many turtles and snakes were harmed or killed. These signs can be seen when approaching the gate to the Nature Area and coming from Meso Island past the causeway. We believe this has helped. If you know of an area where such a sign would benefit the wildlife, please contact the township manager and make your suggestion. Two more signs are available.
