Dear --FNAME--,
These are extraordinary times and with the holiday season in full swing and a new year approaching, we look back on the past year and the accomplishments that your contributions have enabled us to achieve. And while we’re not about to predict precisely what’s going to happen in the new year with a new administration in Trenton, including a new DEP Commissioner and a changed Highlands Council, we are absolutely confident of two things:
The pressure to develop the Highlands is increasing. Despite the adoption of the Highlands Regional Master Plan in 2008, its implementation is far from assured. Well-heeled development interests are skilled at gaining access to the highest levels of government and they will dog the new Governor. Our advocacy and watchdog roles are as important now as ever!
The New Jersey Highlands Coalition will be here, working tirelessly to protect Highlands water resources, our outdoor recreational playground, and our State’s last remaining intact forests with their vast biodiversity, stunning natural beauty, and our next generation’s most powerful shield against the impacts of climate change.
Help us stand against weakened NJDEP regulations, stop developments proposed in environmentally sensitive locations, and hold our elected officials’ feet to the fire. Supporting the New Jersey Highlands Coalition is an investment in maintaining New Jersey’s outstanding natural heritage. Your special holiday gift today ensures that we can continue our efforts to be an effective voice for this remarkable region!
