NJDEP WMA's

Our two contacts in the NJDEP that we worked with on access to northern WMA's both retired without any notification. Contact with the new land manager for north Jersey has been made and off road cycling access has been confirmed. We can also continue our maintenance activities. The prospect of new trails however is not allowed at this time, and use of chainsaws is unresolved. We will keep you informed as we work to reestablish our relationship with the NJDEP WFG.
