The NJ Keep It Green Campaign
The New Jersey - Keep It Green Campaign is a coalition of 135 statewide, local and regional organizations ranging from sportsmen’s groups and environmental organizations to affordable housing and urban park advocates.
The campaign's mission is to secure a long-term stable source of funding for the acquisition of open space, farmland and historic sites as well as the capital improvement, operation, maintenance, and stewardship of state and local natural areas, parks and historic sites in New Jersey.
This work is guided by the belief that every New Jersey resident deserves well-maintained, accessible neighborhood parks, wildlife areas and historic sites.
The organizations are both large and small. There's the Grover Cleveland Birthplace http://clevelandbirthplace.org near me in Caldwell. There's also Clean Ocean Action http://www.cleanoceanaction.org, a leading national and regional voice working to protect waterways using science, law, research, education, and citizen action.
COA's mission statement is to improve the degraded water quality of the marine waters off the New Jersey/New York coast. They work to identify the sources of pollution and mount an attack on each source by using research, public education, and citizen action to convince our public officials to enact and enforce measures which will clean up and protect our ocean.
