WRJA owns an estimated 2,000 acres of pristine forest designated as watershed spanning Berks and Lebanon Counties. All of our land is open for recreational use with the exception of our 35-acre farm and maintenance barn located on Sheridan Road near Newmanstown. This property is clearly posted ‘No Trespassing’ and is completely closed to public access. 

 

Effective January 2021 the WRJA Board of Directors adopted a detailed land use policy to help ensure the survival of the forest for generations to come. Questions regarding use of our land should be directed to Mark Spotts, WRJA Board Member.
