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:

  • FALL WORK PARTY: Saturday, November 5th at 9 AM. Volunteers needed to clear ivy vines, Wisteria, and dirt from the amphitheater next to the Tea House at Comey's Lake. Meet near 100 Lenape Trail just south of Mohawk Drive, where an asphalt path heads down into the woods. Useful tools would be clippers, loppers, garden rakes, shovels, wheelbarrows, and work gloves.
  • NOVEMBER MEETING: Wednesday, November 9th at 7:30 PM at the Sheppard Community Center (historic train station).
  • CLEAN COMMUNITIES DAY: Saturday, November 12th starting at 8:30 AM. Sign up outside the Community Center (Train Station) to help the Borough with simple beautification tasks such as leaf-raking. Please identify yourself as a WEC participant so the Commission can receive monetary credit for your valuable volunteer work! Kids are welcome.

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.
