The Land Conservancy's History

The Land Conservancy of New Jersey preserves land and water resources, conserves open space, and inspires and empowers individuals and communities to protect our natural land and environment.

“I chose to internĀ at The Land Conservancy because I hope to pursue a career in hydrology and soil science in the future. The dedicated staff were very helpful and committed to my intern experience.”
