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:

  • 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.

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!
