The Pinelands Preservation Alliance is hosting this information session. You can attend in person or virtually.
First, we will review the new Wharton State Forest Visitor Map, a draft of which will be released by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) on January 24th. Then we will discuss potential improvements/changes to better protect Wharton’s natural resources and habitats while maintaining reasonable accommodations for recreation and sight-seeing.
DEP is accepting public comments on the draft Visitor Use Map from January 24th to March 9th. This session will help you understand the map and formulate your public comments.
A remote video link will also be available for those who can not attend in person.
