Eco-Schools USA in New Jersey: Helping to Create a More Sustainable State!

Powered by students, teachers, and principals, National Wildlife Federation’s New Jersey Eco-Schools are advancing environmental solutions to help create a more environmentally healthy and sustainable state. Eco-Schools USA has partnered with New Jersey Audubon to support the on-the-ground efforts of schools in New Jersey. In collaboration with Sustainable Jersey and the New Jersey School Boards Association, Eco-Schools in New Jersey can now connect all of their sustainability efforts under one umbrella while they support and reinforce Sustainable Jersey’s municipal programs, which are already on the ground in 375 communities across the state.
