A nonprofit land trust committed to preserving Hopewell Valley Open Space


The Hopewell Valley, bordered by the Delaware River to the west and the Sourland Mountain Region to the north, is defined by its natural beauty and scenic vistas. The Valley's rolling hills, forests, farms and streams are valued highly by the area's residents.

Friends of Hopewell Valley Open Space is a nonprofit land trust that is dedicated to preserving the Valley's character though open space and farmland preservation, and natural resource protection. Since our inception in 1987, we have partnered with landowners, government and nonprofit organizations to preserve over 7,500 acres of open space and farmland.
