The Environmental Commission actively protects our natural resources, promotes Open Space, and offers educational programs to our residents. Every year the Environmental Commission co-sponsors a Community Clean-Up Day together with the NJ Clean Communities Program. This Commission works closely with the Lake Musconetcong Regional Planning Board, the Sussex County Soil Conservation District, the Sussex County Municipal Authority, and the NJ Department of Environmental Protection to ensure our natural resources are protected and preserved.
