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.
- TEA HOUSE CLEANUP WORK PARTY: Saturday, October 7th at 9 AM. Volunteers
needed to clear ivy vines, Wisteria, and dirt from the area of 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.
- OCTOBER MEETING: Wednesday, October 11th starting at 7:30 PM in the
Sheppard Community Center.
- MAD HATTER'S TREE PARTY: Sunday, October 22nd 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 the 2015 event.
- 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.
