April 2021: We would like to welcome Julia Horn as our newest WEC member!
September 2020: We have been awarded a $5,000 grant from Sustainable Jersey and Atlantic City Electric to rehabilitate the
Mantua Creek Trail at Clay Hill. This location is an artifical hill where the West Jersey Railroad originally crossed Mantua Creek in 1861. The existing steps will be rebuilt, sitting benches will be installed, and a historical plaque will be installed. WEC
and Green Team member Sharon Ceravolo outlines the project in this short video:
June 2020: We would like to congratulate Wenonah 6th grade graduates Ali Hayes and Christian Snyder, the winners of our 2020 Frank Eggert Memorial Student Environmental Awards!
April 2020: To ensure your safety and the health of the community,
please observe these guidelines when using our trails:
* Go solo, or with your immediate family only.
* Do not visit if you are sick.
* Wear a cloth face mask per CDC
* Warn others of your presence as you pass, and
step aside if someone is passing you.
* Make space for others - maintain social
distancing of 6 feet from other individuals at all times.
* Take your trash home with you, and clean up after
April 2020: We have received reports of raccoons and squirrels in
the area that appear ill, are acting strangely, or have died. These animals
are likely suffering from a form of distemper. They do not pose a threat to
you or vaccinated pets. If have a concern about a live wild animal on the
trails or on your property, please contact the Gloucester
County Animal Control Division at 856-881-2828.
March 2020: Our 2019 Trail Guide is
