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.
- VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION NIGHT and DECEMBER MEETING: Wednesday,
December 13th at 6:30 PM in the Sheppard Community Center. If you want to
learn more about what we do and who is involved, this is a great opportunity
to come and find out! Light refreshments will be served. Our formal
meeting gets underway at 7:30 PM.

Saturday, December 30th starting at 8:00 PM. Hike our trails under a nearly- full moon!
Please check back later in December for the exact
location. All ages and four-legged friends are welcome!
- 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.
