In 2006, the late Middlesex County Freeholder Director, David B. Crabiel, announced the formation of the Middlesex County Conservation Corps to “to protect and preserve our natural areas from misuse, polluters and the forces of nature.”  Since the inception of the Open Space and Farmland Preservation Trust Fund in 1995, Middlesex County has preserved over 7,500 acres of open space throughout Middlesex County.  
“To fulfill the responsibility as stewards of these lands, the Middlesex County Conservation Corps is charged with the care and management of them, by performing projects that maintain and improve the quality of the open space and allow public access,” said Crabiel, who first introduced the initiative in his Director’s message in January 2006.
