2020 was a doozy! Our new annual report tells the story.
Last year was a doozy! 2020 presented daunting challenges that none of us will soon forget, and The Land Conservancy of New Jersey certainly faced its share. We closed our office in March and never reopened, cancelling all events. Our Gran Fondo team couldn’t ride, our World Series of Birding team was forced to count birds from their porches, and our 12th annual Gray Cup golf event—our largest fundraiser—was postponed.
But despite these and other setbacks, we accomplished a tremendous amount. We completed our restoration of the West Brook’s headwaters and then watched the stream run wild and free, overflowing into adjacent wetlands for the first time in 60 years. We also completed a new parking lot and held the grand opening of the new Nancy Conger West Brook Preserve with the Conger family.
Our 2020 annual report chronicles these milestones and recognizes those who helped us get through a tough year. It also contains pieces of our story that deserve some more airplay. For example, did you know that TLCNJ recently developed New Jersey's first critical habitat plan to help protect endangered species?
These achievements wouldn't be possible without our supporters, which makes you a part of this success story. Take a look at our 2020 annual report and see what you've helped us accomplish. Thank you!
