The Anderson Creek Marsh consists of 52-acres and is bounded on the northwest by the Hackensack River, on the northeast by the NJ Transit Bergen Line and on the southwest by wetlands owned by the Town of Secaucus. Restoration of the Anderson Creek Marsh was being contemplated by the US Army Corps of Engineers and the former NJMC as part of the Hudson-Raritan Estuary (HRE) Hackensack Meadowlands Ecosystem Restoration Study (HMERS). To prepare the site for restoration, the site was sprayed with herbicide over a three-year period, which was successful in eradicating almost all of the invasive form of the Common Reed (Phragmites) at the site. After the Phragmites was eradicated, federal funding for the project did not materialize.
The southern portion of the site has been colonized by native Smooth Cordgrass (Spartina alterniflora), while the central and northern portions of the site are dominated by mudflats.
