NPSNJ stands with The Friends of the Drew Forest and Entomologist and Co-Founder of Homegrown National Park® Doug Tallamy to preserve the 53-acre Drew Forest from development. It is 2023 and long past time for the development of natural areas to stop. We call on Drew University, nicknamed “the University in the Forest” to preserve its heritage and sell the property as a market-value conservation purchase as well as on town, county, and state officials to work together to help the purchase. Take a look at this brief video by Doug in which he outlines how important such spaces are to reversing the decline of bird and insect species. Sign the petition below and get engaged.
