Become An Advocate

Are you involved in your community’s environmental issues? Do you attend regular meetings on issues in your municipality? Would it be helpful to have the support and coordination of the NJ Highlands Coalition for your efforts?  If so the Highlands Advocates program is a perfect fit for you.  We are looking for active environmental volunteers to join our network of Highlands Advocates!

Over the past several years, the NJ Highlands Coalition has been working with and seeking out people active in their communities within the 88 Highlands municipalities. Our goal is to partner with at least one individual in all 88 municipalities enabling us to have a strong presence across the Highlands through our team of Highlands Advocates.

Benefits of becoming an advocate:

  • Access to webinars/seminars on environmental law and policy, science and current threats to the Highlands
  • Be part of a network of other prominent environmental community members and fellow advocates
  • Gain support of the NJ Highlands Coalition for your advocacy efforts in your Highlands’ municipality
