As the spring season is now upon us, on behalf of the Christie Administration, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) would like to remind you of the various events and natural resources that are available for your constituents at New Jersey’s 39 State Parks, 11 Forests, 50 Historic sites and 121 Wildlife Management Areas.
Last year, New Jersey’s State Parks had 19 million visitors and offer opportunities to experience first-hand our natural and historic beauty by visiting our wildlife management and interpretation centers, hiking trails, lakes, rivers, forest, beaches and historic monuments and battlefields covering nearly 800,000 acres.
I am pleased to announce the launch of our new mobile phone application to help visitors plan for and make the most out of their trips to New Jersey’s State parks, forest and historic sites.
