Please Help by Attending the May 9th
Sparta Mountain WMA Public Meeting!

A revised logging plan has been released for the Sparta Mountain WMA and the forest needs your help!

Please plan to attend the May 9th 6 PM public hearing at:

Sussex County Technical School

105 North Church Road

Sparta, NJ

Members of the public will have 3 minutes to speak. Note that the DEP is not accepting comments to revise the plan. This is meant to be an information session where they answer your questions. ​​​​​​​

We need to fight to protect the last forests in NJ by promoting an ecological approach to Forest Stewardship, not a profit driven approach.

Sparta Mountain is the beginning of the state's plans to perform the same work on the last surviving publicly owned forests and state parks of New Jersey.  

We can't afford to loose these trees not only do they provide the air we breathe and are home to NJ's precious wildlife but they filter the very drinking water we depend on to live!​​​​​​​
