About the NJ Highlands Coalition
Through events such as the Highlands art exhibit, the New Jersey Highlands Coalition promotes awareness about the beauty, and cultural and natural resources of the N.J. Highlands region.
As a nonprofit organization in Boonton, the New Jersey Highlands Coalition works to protect, restore and enhance the water and other natural and cultural resources of New Jersey’s Highlands, now and for the future.
The New Jersey Highlands region encompasses 88 municipalities in Bergen, Hunterdon, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex and Warren counties.
The region’s natural resources are protected under the New Jersey Highlands Water Protection and Planning Act, enacted because 6.2 million state residents depend on the Highlands for drinking water.
