Closing Roads is a Failed Policy

In all the township meetings and newspaper articles,  the DEP has been quick to show pictures of Jemima Mount, using it as an example of why roads must be closed to prevent impact to the forest.  But did you know that Jemima Mt. has been closed to motorized vehicles for well over a decade?  Ironically, the DEP has been showcasing how the policy they are promoting has been failing for over 10 years!


Stakeholder and Public Meetings Regarding the MAP

Important update: The date of the public forum has been posted to the Wharton State Forest home page.  It will be on Thursday, November 5th at 6:30 PM at Hammonton High School.  Despite it being a “Public” forum, you still have to register by calling 609 704 1964 or email whartonmapcomments@dep.nj.gov before 10/28 to be able to attend.  It is critically important that folks register and attend this session.  Additionally, stakeholder sessions will be held at the end of October.  If you are the leader of a group (hunting, hiking, kayaking, 4×4, etc.) please call the same number above and register your group for the stakeholder forums.
