Campaign to Protect the Pinelands

We’re announcing a campaign to protect the Pinelands. The Pinelands is under attack by the South Jersey Gas Pipeline and other pipelines. We have to stand together to stop these pipelines. We held a rally and campaign kick-off at the Statehouse in Trenton on August 20th. along with Pinelands Preservation Alliance, Environment New Jersey, and other concerned citizens to come together in solidarity for the Pinelands.  Read a news article about the rally and an editorial.

Highlands Picnic and Hike

On August 9, members and supporters came to the Highlands Natural Pool for a picnic and hike to celebrate the 11th anniversary of the Highlands Act, which helps to preserve our water supply and open space in the North Jersey region.  See photos of the event here.

Proposed ExxonMobil Settlement

The ExxonMobil Proposed Settlement is even worse than we expected. Under the original proposal, New Jersey was to receive $8.9 billion for natural resources damages, but under this deal the state would only receive $225 million. The agreement now includes 16 additional sites and an estimated 800 gas stations, not just the two refineries. Read about the Proposed Settlement and make your voice heard.

Land and Water Conservation Fund

We need your help ... should Congress fail to act, the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) will expire on September 30, 2015.

The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) is a bipartisan commitment to safeguard natural areas, water resources and our cultural heritage, and to provide recreation opportunities to all Americans. Unfortunately, nearly every year, much of the funding for this critical program is diverted to uses other than conserving our most important lands and waters. Funding for LWCF, $900 million per year, is paid for by royalties from oil and gas companies drilling on the Outer Continental Shelf. However, LWCF has only received its full allotment of funding twice in its 50 year history.  See more on what LWCF has done in New Jersey here.
We need your help. Submit a letter to the editor in support of permanent reauthorization and full funding of the Land and Water Conservation Fund. Here are some examples for you to use.
