Looking from the banks of the Mullica River south over the open marsh, Atlantic white cedars skirt the distant forest. This is Clarks Landing Preserve, a blending of many of the most representative habitats in the outer coastal plain physiographic province. Aquatic open water habitat of this tidally influenced section of the Mullica River offers hunting opportunities for wintering bald eagles. King and sora rails hide amongst the marsh grass at high tide. Pitcher plants grow with sphagnum mosses in tea colored seeps of the cedar swamp. In the blackjack oak uplands, a towhee scratches though the leaf litter hunting beetles and grubs. Clarks Landing Preserve protects a wide range of natural community types benefiting many plants and animals. Working with the Green Acres Program, the Trust continues to protect additional lands in the vicinity.
Clarks Landing Preserve is best accessed from Clarks Landing Road. No maintained trails are available but old sand roads are often adequate for short walks. The Trust allows registration for deer hunting at this preserve.
