Skylands CLEAN applies for grant

West Milford Messenger


 Skylands CLEAN, an environmental group dedicated to protecting the natural environment of the Highlands region, has applied for a $14,000 grant that will help them upgrade a nearly one mile tract of land between Pinecliff Lake and Bald Eagle Village into a community-accessible nature trail.
Partnering with the Passaic River Coalition, which bought the 221-acre parcel now known as Emerald Forest, and the NY/NJ Trail Conference, Skylands CLEAN hopes to have the trail cleared and graded, and, with the help of students and faculty from William Paterson University and West Milford High School biology departments, provide environmental education for residents along the way.
