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.
- GLOUCESTER COUNTY BIRD QUEST: Saturday, May 6th at 7:00 AM. It is
an opportunity to discover the amazing birds that surround us every day in
Gloucester County. The WEC will again be fielding a team that will be
focusing our quest on the great birds of the Wenonah Conservation Area and
Tall Pines State Preserve. To learn more, see the WEC
team flyer as well as the Nature
Club's event flyer.
- MAY MEETING: Wednesday, May 10th 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!
