About the Ardsley Wildlife Sanctuary 

Stewardship of Ardsley Wildlife Sanctuary is a top priority for the Shade Tree Commission.  This 81-acre tract of land  was obtained by the township in 1996 utilizing Montgomery County open space grant money to fund 90% of the purchase. A large portion of this property is environmentally sensitive.
Throughout the property there are wetlands, water bodies and steep slopes. Over 85% is woodland. In addition, the township has made significant investment to upgrade the regional stormwater management system. We invite you to take a walk and get to know this unique open space.
