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:

  • 21st ANNUAL INDEPENDENCE DAY HIKE: Tuesday, July 4th at 4:00 PM. Take a relaxing, shaded stroll as you learn about the hidden treasures of our Conservation Lands and trails.  See the "beaver lake" and the new 300-foot boardwalk over a marshy area. For all ages!  We'll meet at the Eldridge Trail entrance sign on East Pine St. near South Princeton. The hike will end at the Comey's Lake Tea House.
  • JULY MEETING: Wednesday, July 12th starting at 7:30 PM in the Sheppard Community Center.

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.
