Our Mission

A partnership of private corporations, federal and state government, conservation organizations and academia to protect, enhance and restore important aquatic habitats and water quality in New Jersey and surrounding areas.

Working Together to Make a Difference

The New Jersey Corporate Wetlands Restoration Partnership (NJCWRP) is an innovative public-private initiative aimed at restoring, preserving, enhancing and protecting aquatic habitats throughout New Jersey. Bringing together corporations, federal and state agencies, non-governmental organizations and academia, the NJCWRP allows participants to contribute in a fundamental way to crucial projects involving New Jersey's coastal and inland wetlands and aquatic habitats.

The NJCWRP is unique not only in its collaborative approach to solving the problems facing New Jersey's valuable water resources, but also in its ability to apply federal dollars to projects that improve the health of our coastlines, rivers, and waterways. Because company dollars are combined with governmental and other funds, the value of NJCWRP contributions has increased many-fold. A company's ability to leverage funds is one of many reasons the NJCWRP stands out in its conservations efforts.
