Five hundred parcels of land preserved! Fascinating future environmental leaders profiled! Endangered species returning! There's a wealth of little gems to discover in the most recent newsletter.
Our staff works hard all year long, each team plugging away at a different facet of our conservation work, and each member contributing their unique skills and experience. The land team navigates the intricacies of Green Acres regulations; our mapping experts plug huge data sets into GIS to make maps both beautiful and useful. The planning team finds and uses green spaces in municipalities all over the state. Our stewardship team removes invasive species, plants trees, clears the trails at our preserves, and heads up restoration efforts. The communications team shares stories and forges relationships to build community and bring in funding.
This newsletter is a peek behind the curtain so you can see what makes the organization's engine hum, as well as learn where we're headed: funding open space in New Jersey, building climate resilience for at-risk communities, and training the next generation of environmental scientists.
