The New Jersey Highlands Coalition is hosting the 1st annual Highlands Festival on September 21-22, 2013 at Waterloo Village in Byram, NJ. The environmental festival will be a “Celebration of All Things Local” and will promote local music, food, art, history, cultural and natural resources.
The Coalition, a Dodge grantee, is hosting the Highlands Festival to raise awareness about the natural resources of the NJ Highlands region, to promote the missions of the NJ Highlands Coalition’s 80+ nonprofit member organizations, and as an innovative way to fund the 2014 Small Grants Program which supports local grassroots organizations.
Dodge supports the Highlands Coalition’s work to protect, restore, and enhance the water and other natural and cultural resources of New Jersey’s Highlands. Did you know? 5.4 million state residents depend on the Highlands for clean, safe drinking water.
The Coalition works in the 88 municipalities in Bergen, Hunterdon, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, and Warren counties that are protected under the New Jersey Highlands Water Protection and Planning Act. More information on the NJ Highlands Coalition can be found at the organization’s website.
