Cancer Alley or the Garden State?

It’s time to talk about the environment in New Jersey, but it’s definitely not a new discussion. Land use from 400 years ago still impacts our health and land today. Progressive thinkers in the 1970s prompted a closer look at protection, preservation, and stewardship, which resulted in protective legislative policies. Through the lens of human interest stories and environmental events, participants will discuss the environmental history of the state and how citizens can be informed and empowered to act.
