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.
- 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.
- 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
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.
