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.
- 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.
- 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.
