Who are the Friends of NJSOC?

Friends members are teachers, students, former campers and counselors, and people from all walks of life who have participated in programs at the New Jersey School of Conservation and/or care about the future of the School and its programs. 

The NJSOC is the environmental field station for Montclair State University, located on 240-acres in Stokes State Forest. Since 1949, the NJSOC has served the schools, colleges, and citizens of New Jersey with programs in environmental education. In addition, the school provides research opportunities in conservation and ecology for undergraduate, graduate, and faculty members from MSU and other colleges and universities.

What does the Friends group do?

Friends members work in cooperation with NJSOC staff to identify and carry out projects that will further the School’s mission of teaching environmentally responsible behaviors that will encourage scientists, teachers, students and citizens to promote sustainable practices in their own communities.

Friends help through fundraising, program development, marketing, and by taking on special projects. Friends also have fun! Members enjoy the facilities of the School of Conservation at annual Family Fun Weekends.
