Named for the area’s nesting eagles, Eagleswood Township today remains a diverse habitat for wildlife. In fact, a portion of the wetlands bordering Barnegat Bay lies in the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. An active historical society works diligently to preserve the town’s charming downtown district and beautiful old buildings. Nestled in the Pinelands, Eagleswood has long welcomed the anglers and hunters who take advantage of its natural resources. With its scenic beauty, open space, and serene atmosphere, Eagleswood continues to grow steadily in population. Many newcomers are drawn to the area for its exceptional fishing, hunting, and water sports.
