In South Jersey, nine nonprofits are working together to protect the Kirkwood-Cohansey Aquifer, a groundwater system of 17 trillion gallons of water that serves as a source of drinking water for about 1 million people in South Jersey.
As of April 7, 2020, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced the closure of all New Jersey county and state parks and forests until further notice in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.
