The Fightn’ Femelschlagers

New Jersey Audubon is New Jersey’s premier conservation organization and the State’s leader in environmental stewardship. The New Jersey Audubon Stewardship Department hopes you will join us in our efforts to restore and conserve our natural resources and landscapes for future generations by supporting our team in the World Series of Birding.

From coastal beach restoration to sustainable ecological forestry, from innovative conservation and ecological service projects on NJ farmland to the translocation and re-establishment of wild Bobwhite Quail to the NJ Pinelands, the NJA Stewardship Department’s conservation projects address critical issues for our region and serve as models nationally because our work is the “gold standard” in bringing farmers, private landowners, local government and businesses together to conserve and restore critical habitat for wildlife and protect NJ’s natural resources!

Conservation knows no state borders - what we do in NJ impacts the surrounding states and many species.

Make a difference; your support of the NJA Stewardship Department directly supports the Department’s efforts to create and maintain healthy habitat for all wildlife species in NJ, not just the birds. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!!

The NJ Audubon Stewardship Department Team exclusively uses Vortex Optics for the event. 

The NJ Audubon Stewardship Department Team thanks our team sponsors: Hudson FarmErnst Conservation SeedsSouth Jersey GasOcean SprayVortex Optics and Edelman Financial for their generous support toward helping us restore, enhance and maintain healthy habitat for all wildlife species in NJ!

Yours in Conservation,

The NJA Stewardship Department

Let us be good stewards of the Earth we inherited. All of us have to share the Earth's fragile ecosystems and precious resources, and each of us has a role to play in preserving them. If we are to go on living together on this earth, we must all be responsible for it.
~Kofi Annan

So what is a Femelschlag? “Femelschlag”, is a German term for a forest management practice that is designed to emulate natural disturbance patterns and encourage tree species diversity in multiple-age classes, thereby enhancing ecosystem services and complexity. (A lot of our sustainable forestry work for various rare species involves this management practice here in NJ) #Femelschlag
