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:

  • MAD HATTER'S TREE PARTY: Sunday, October 24th from 1-3 PM on the Eldridge Trail (starting at the end of East Pine Street).  This is a 45-minute self-paced 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.  To get an idea of how the event unfolds, see this 7-minute professional video from 2015.
  • FALL WORK PARTY: Saturday, November 6th at 9 AM. Volunteers needed to assist with tornado-related debris cleanup on the Mantua Creek Trail near West Cedar Street and South West Avenue. More details to be posted here soon.

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:
