Protecting New Jersey's Sourland Mountain since 1986!

The Sourland Conservancy is a very small nonprofit with a very small staff. Our very active volunteers plant trees, lead hikes, host educational seminars, conduct field research, and more!

We need help attracting more volunteers and keeping them engaged! We want to show our volunteers how much we love them and appreciate their support. Your duties might include posting volunteer opportunities, contacting interested volunteers, thanking volunteers afterward, and more!

Our office is located in the heart of the Sourlands in Central New Jersey. Residency is not required but might be a plus. Questions? Please email info@sourland.org.

Description

The Sourland Conservancy carries out its mission to protect the Sourland region through educational programs and advocacy efforts. The Sourland region is a 90 square mile area of critical forest, grassland and wetland habitats that lies within parts of Hunterdon, Mercer and Somerset counties. It is an island of biodiversity in a sea of encroaching sprawl. Characterized by a fragile eological balance, the Sourland Mountain region face pressures that threaten to deplete and degrate the water and delicate ecology of the area. The region boasts the largest contiguous forest in Central NJ and is an essential stopover for Neotropical migrant songbirds. The Sourland Conservancy seeks to educate residents and visitors to the Sourlands about its ecological, historical and recreational value. The organization also advocates for municipal ordinances that support the protection and preservation of the Sourlands.
