Watershed Center Closed for Thanksgiving Weekend (Nov 26-29)
On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
Share how you #give!
Stop the PennEast Pipeline!
The route of the proposed PennEast natural gas pipeline is planned to cut through ecologically-sensitive areas of Hopewell Township, devastating a 125-foot wide swath of protected forests, wetlands, open space, farmland, and pristine waterways in its wake. Help us defend the land we have worked hard to protect over the past 65 years. Click to learn more about this issue.
Are you River-Friendly?
The River-Friendly Certification Program promotes clean water and a healthy environment through voluntary action by individuals and institutions. To achieve these goals we work one-on-one with residents, businesses, golf courses and schools to improve land stewardship practices. The program works to reduce pollution, conserve water, restore habitat for wildlife and educate the public about becoming better environmental stewards. Become River-Friendly Today!
