Make a Difference in New Jersey
The Nature Conservancy’s mission is to protect the lands and waters on which all life depends, and for more than 60 years, we’ve been working in New Jersey to do just that.

Removing Dams and Reconnecting Rivers
The Nature Conservancy is working in New Jersey to remove key dams along the Paulins Kill and Pequest rivers to build healthy, resilient rivers and streams and restore floodplains, which will benefit fish, wildlife and people.
