Wildlife & wild places

Can you imagine a world filled with more wildlife and wild places? So can we. And we’re working together to make it happen.

Every minute, we’re losing two football fields worth of wild lands, and too many animal species face extinction. It’s up to us to turn things around. We imagine an America with more mountaintops where all we see is forests below, with more rivers that flow wild and free, more shoreline where all we hear are waves. An America with abundant wildlife, from butterflies and bees floating lazily in your backyard, to the howl of a coyote in the distance, to the breach of a whale just visible from the shore. Together, we can work toward this better future.

NJ Senate Passes NJ School of Conservation Bill to Give Control to Friends of NJSOC

The New Jersey State Senate voted to pass S438 (Smith/Codey) by an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 40-0 which will transfer management to the New Jersey School of Conversation from Montclair State University to the Friends of the New Jersey School of Conservation (NJSOC). This will allow the Friends of NJSOC to restore and fully reopen the NJSOC as a year-round residential environmental education center. NJSOC is a 300-acre environmental education center campus located in Stokes State Forest in Sussex County, incorporated in 1949 and then left in the lurch with the sudden closure by Montclair State University in the early days of the pandemic.
