Hanover Crossings Marsh

Hanover Twp • 39.97 Acres

The 40 acre Hanover Crossings Marsh located in Hanover Township was once part of the Hanover Industrial Park Complex but was transferred to the Luzerne County Conservation District many years ago as part of wetlands mitigation project. The Conservation District deeded the property to NBLT in 2010.

The focal point of the property is the spectacular fifteen acre marsh complex with a wide variety of flora and fauna found there. The remainder of the property boasts a mix of hardwoods, conifers and even some wildflower fields created back when the park was under construction. This property certainly offers a variety of habitat types.

The marsh is however in need of some tender loving care. Being situated at the end of the park and with housing developments to the west of the property illegal dumping of garbage is a problem. NBLT is working with local stakeholders to develop a cleanup plan and to encourage local eyes and ears to keep a look out and report any transgressions to us and local law enforcement.

Hanover Crossings Marsh is a truly beautiful urban property that can offer both a variety of habitat for many plant and animal species as well as passive recreation opportunities to the public. We will keep you posted on our plans for this fine property.
