The180-acre sanctuary was bequeathed to Tewksbury Township by the beloved Helen A. Whittemore. She was a nature lover and diarist who wanted her land and house to be preserved so that others may be awed by the natural world and inspired by its beauty to preserve it.

The sanctuary includes Whittemore House and 11 miles of trails for hiking, dog walking, and horseback riding and Geocaching. Trails traverse mainly wooded areas with wetlands, ravines, and hilly terrain. The sanctuary also serves as the perfect stage for birders and nature lovers to view local avian species and other wildlife.

The Whittemore Geotrail is a series of caches tied together by a common topic or theme and to showcase an historic location. Geocachers who complete the Whittemore Sanctuary geotrail with receive a commemorative Whittemore Sanctuary Token of their adventure. (one per registered Geocaching name only)

NNJC is about promoting a quality caching experience in Northern New Jersey.
