Dismal Swamp Gets Attention In New Book by David Wheeler

312.jpgEdison resident David Wheeler's forthcoming book, "Wild New Jersey: Nature Adventures in the Garden State," graces the cover of the just-released Rutgers University Press Fall/Winter 2010 Catalog in advance of the book's publication this coming winter
"Despite a reputation to the contrary, New Jersey is a state with more biodiversity and outdoor recreation options than just about any other place its size in America," says Wheeler.  "The Garden State offers such a spectacular range of adventures for everyone from an avid wildlife enthusiast to a family just looking to spend some time outdoors.  With 'Wild New Jersey,' I hope to open people's eyes to some of these adventures, particularly in the often-overlooked Central Jersey region."

Indeed, one chapter focuses on the Dismal Swamp Conservation Area in Edison, Metuchen, and South Plainfield, while another spotlights the Raritan Estuary going through Edison, Woodbridge, New Brunswick, and other nearby towns.
Wheeler, who co-founded the state's only daily nature blog, WildNewJersey.tv, and serves as the Director of Operations for Edison Wetlands Association, has previously written a nature column for the Star Ledger and other media.
