Open Space Committee


The Open Space Advisory Committee advises the Mayor and Council regarding needs for and appropriate uses of Township-owned open space parcels, and use of the Open Space Trust Fund.  The Committee recommends actions to advance conservation and active and passive recreation, including land purchases made in partnership with the New Jersey Green Acres Trust, the Gloucester County Green Acres Program, and potential private partner organizations.  In cooperation with Township staff and volunteers, the Committee's current activities include reforestation projects, establishment of community gardens, and enhancement of nature trails and opportunities for access and enjoyment of public areas.
