Gandy's Beach Preserve

698 Jones Island Rd
Cedarville, NJ 08311

The preserve is open from dawn to dusk. During the shorebird migration in May and June, the beach is closed; birding enthusiasts can view the spectacular natural phenomenon from a kiosk overlooking the water.

The preserve harbors several state-rate plants, including upright bindweed (Convolvulus spithamaeus), coast bedstraw (Galium hispidulum) and bristling panic grass (Panicum aciculare).

State-endangered raptors, including northern harriers (Circus cyaneus) and peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus), and threatened wintering bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) use the land.
