Take action, New Jersey residents!

Call on the New Jersey State Assembly and Senate to vote for the Green Amendment to the NJ Constitution.

Call on New jersey Governor Murphy to sign on to the Transportation and Climate Initiative Memorandum of Understanding. New Jersey has a goal of reducing carbon emissions by 80% by 2050. Almost half of those emissions come from transportation. The state is implementing programs to electrify transportation, but even more needs to be done. New Jersey should sign Transportaton and Climate Initiative’s memorandum of understanding, joining several other states which have already signed. Tell Governor Murphy now that we need him to sign it now!.

Breakneck Ridge, New Jersey, is one of the thousands of popular hiking areas served by the LWCF.

Pennsylvania has one of the best State Park systems in the country and AMC members benefit greatly from the recreation opportunities it provides. Over the last two years, the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) has been working on the Penn’s Parks for All strategic plan which will guide DCNR’s work for the next 25 years. Many AMC members have provided input for this process and the preliminary report has now been published. We encourage you to review the recommendations and provide further comment here: Penn’s Parks for All.
