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:

  • 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.

What's New:

  • 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.
  • 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!
