Small waterfall on Camelback Run in the Conservation Area.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.

Coming Attractions:

  • FALL WORK PARTY: Saturday, November 4th at 9 AM. Volunteers needed to move dirt and wood chips to Camel's Back Loop, formerly known as Synnott's Pond. The dirt will be dumped behind the bulkheads (installed at the Fall Work Party three years ago) and the chips will be raked onto the trails. Useful tools to bring would be wheelbarrows, shovels, and garden rakes. The best parking spot is on the last block of East Elm Street, just before Woodbury-Glassboro Road, near the large green pump enclosure.
  • NOVEMBER MEETING: Wednesday, November 8th starting at 7:30 PM in the Sheppard Community Center.
  • CLEAN COMMUNITIES DAY: Saturday, November 11th starting at 8:30 AM. Sign up outside the Community Center (Train Station) to help the Borough with simple beautification tasks such as leaf-raking. Please identify yourself as a WEC participant so the Commission can receive monetary credit for your valuable volunteer work! Kids are welcome.

What's New:

  • June 2017: Congratulations to 6th grade graduates Farrell Donnelly and Lily Cline, winners of the WEC Frank Eggert Memorial Student Environmental Awards for 2017.  Each has received $100 in recognition of their interest in and volunteer efforts toward the local environment.
  • July 2016: Congratulations to Chuck Forsman, recipient of the 2016 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.
