Picnic in the Park - Mercer County Defense League's Environmental Networking Event April 14

As President of the Mercer County Defense League, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, and one of the founders of the coalition, the Green Garden State Alliance, I am reaching out to invite you to our 2nd Annual Environmental Networking Event!

On Sunday, April 14th, at Mercer County Park (West Picnic Area, near the boathouse), we are hosting environmental organizations from across the State.

Our mission is to educate and amplify awareness about environmental concerns including climate change, overdevelopment of warehouses and other poorly sited commercial projects that could negatively impact wildlife, forests, small businesses, the health, safety, and quality of life for New Jerseyans.

Last spring, at our Environmental Networking Event, we worked hard to amplify the messaging for Governor Murphy's Administration to adopt the landmark Inland Flood Protection Rule. In July of 2023, the NJDEP finally adopted this rule to help ensure that current precipitation data is used to better protect NJ communities from worsening flooding due to climate change!

There is so much work to be done, including changing the NJ State Planning Commission's Warehouse Siting Guidance from voluntary guidance to mandatory law. If passed by the NJ Legislature, this new law will greatly help to protect New Jersey townships from overdevelopment. We are continuing to advocate for protecting and preserving our Garden State from unsustainable and irresponsible development.

We invite you to come, and/or to host an information table at the event if you are affiliated with an environmental organization. Clean Water Action, NJ Conservation, League of Conservation Voters, Save Hamilton Open Space, Citizens' Climate Lobby, North Crosswicks Friends of Open Space, and other environmental organizations will be there. 

We have another wonderful program planned this spring: the live music of the Bad Hombres at 1:00pm, Mercer County Executive, Dan Benson, will kick off our speakers at 2:00pm followed by Assemblyman Anthony Verrelli LD15, Assemblyman Wayne DeAngelo LD14, Assemblyman Alex Sauickie LD12 amongst others!  There will be activities for the kids and information for everyone.... Again, we will have Rutgers' Enviro-Scape used in a demonstration by a Girl Scout Troop showing how water runoff works and the importance of stormwater management, especially in flood prone regions of New Jersey.

 

  • We would love to have you come with your family and friends! 

  • If you are involved with an environmental organization, please host an information table, share information, and promote your environmental mission.

  • If you want time at the mic to speak about the environmentclimate change, how to combat overdevelopment, sustainable farming and the like, let us know!

  • HERE is the sign-up form for hosting an information table and/or requesting 3-10 minutes at the mic. 

  • Please feel free to share broadly!
