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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
