What does the Musky mean to you? Franklin Twp (Warren) is holding hearings Feb 12th to turn an area of prime farmland into a “Redevelopment Zone”, a designation reserved for blighted areas. This will give developers permission to build a 1.2 mil.sq.ft. warehouse on the property!

NEW New Jersey was on the cusp of passing the nation’s most comprehensive set of regulations on plastic bags, Styrofoam food containers and plastic straws. Barring a last-minute compromise, it will die today in Trenton. Why? Enter paper....

We need the Legislature to act in the next few days— NJ uses 4.4 Billion plastic bags a year, cuts down 1,300 acres of forests (1000 football fields) to satiate our paper bag usage too. #BantheBags #BagPlasticsNJ

The #HighlandsHoliday season can generate lots of trash, especially when wrapping gifts. Try substituting traditional packaging for household items! Swap tape for twine or clothespins, and wrapping paper for newspaper, paper from old books, old shirts/fabric, and empty boxes!

Urban sprawl, dam construction and polluted waterways remain threats to the brook trout’s native waterways. With the aid of C1 stream classifications, enforced wild trout stream regulations and public awareness, brook trout might be able to hold their own.
