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:

  • OCTOBER MEETING: Wednesday, October 12th at 7:30 PM at the Sheppard Community Center (historic train station).
  • MAD HATTER'S TREE PARTY: Sunday, October 23rd from 1-4 PM on the Eldridge Trail (starting at the end of East Pine Street).  This is a 45-minute guided walk featuring educational talks on trees, live music, and, of course, tea with the Mad Hatter himself!  The party is a FREE event co-sponsored by the WEC and the Gloucester County Nature Club.  Please see the event brochure for more information. Also, see the 7-minute movie of last year's event.

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!
  • January 2016: Welcome to Sharon Ceravolo as the newest member of the WEC.  Also, we extend a thank-you to Tommy Lombardo for his six years of service as a member.
