History

The 52-acre Fieldstone Farm Preserve was acquired in 2008. The acquisition was funded by the Monroe County Open Space Program and PA DCNR. The preserve provides a major and sustaining groundwater/spring fed flow to the headwaters of Tank Creek. Tank Creek is a high quality headwater to the Paradise Creek, and forms an approximately one half mile boundary between the preserve and State Gamelands #221 (Devil’s Hole). The property also has two freshwater ponds, numerous hillside springs and wetland areas, and the remains of an old stone farmhouse. The habitat mix of old fields, mixed forests, springs, ponds and riparian headwater stream area combined with the spectacular view of Paradise Valley and the Delaware River and beyond make it ideal for both wildlife and public access.
