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 6th at 9 AM. Volunteers are needed to clean up and widen the Mantua Creek Trail in the tornado-affected area where many trees had fallen. We will be cutting back small branches, vines, thorns, and other obstructions to a smooth walking experience. Useful tools would be loppers, clippers, hand saws, shovels, and metal rakes. We will meet at the end of South West Avenue, south of Cedar Street.
  • NOVEMBER MEETING: Wednesday, November 10th at 7:30 PM at the Sheppard Community Center (historic train station).

What's New:

  • June 2021: We would like to congratulate Wenonah 6th grade graduates Cara Millard and Sadie Torres, the winners of our 2021 Frank Eggert Memorial Student Environmental Awards!
  • 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:
