Welcome to this portal into the scenic natural beauty of Wenonah, New
Jersey. Come discover what makes our area special,
what the WEC is doing to enhance it, and how
you can help.
- ELDRIDGE TRAIL BOARDWALK WORK PARTY: Saturday, March 25th at 8:30 AM. Volunteers
needed to remove existing trail infrastructure (stepping stones, side rails,
wooden bridges) prior to constructing a boardwalk. To get to the work site,
park near 102 Lenape Trail (the street), then proceed on the asphalt trail
into the woods and keep left at every turn. Shovels, garden rakes, and a few
wheelbarrows would be helpful. After demolition, we will begin digging
footings and piecing together the lumber for the new boardwalk.
- APRIL MEETING: Wednesday, April 12th starting at 7:30 PM in the
Sheppard Community Center.
- July 2016: Congratulations to Chuck Forsman, recipient of
Wenonah Hometown Legend Award. Chuck was a founding member of the WEC in
1975. He worked with Borough Council and local landowners to enlarge our
conservation area, resulting in the 135-acre "ring of green" we
have today. He led efforts to improve the water quality of our local streams
and lakes. Most recently, in 2008, he kicked off the ultimately successful
citizen-led effort to turn the former Tall Pines / Eagle's Nest / Maple
Ridge golf course into a nature
preserve rather than a housing development.
- June 2016: Congratulations to 6th grade graduates Gwendalyn
Farina and Marianna Olaya, winners of the WEC Frank Eggert
Memorial Student Environmental Awards for 2016. Each has received $100 in recognition of their interest in and
volunteer efforts toward the local environment.
- May 2016: We had a professional video made of our Mad
Hatter's Tree Party from last October. It shows Eldridge Trail, Comey's
Lake, the Tea House, and our "mad" volunteers like you've never
seen them before!
