To all of our wonderful volunteers who help keep our trails clear and our parks beautiful, thank you!Spring has sprung! Our volunteers are hitting the trails, clearing trees, picking up litter, and planning numerous other improvements to Warren County’s beautiful parks. Check out our most recent newsletter highlighting some of their accomplishments from 2020 below!
You may be aware of the recent video created by the Warren County Economic Development Committee (WCEDC) highlighting all that Warren County has to offer families and visitors (See “Get to Know Warren County, New Jersey!” at www.youtube.com/watch?v=xD7d6226KzI). We are now working on shorter videos of 15 to 30 seconds each to highlight different aspects of Healthy Living/Healthy Lifestyle in Warren County.
The WCEDC is asking for your assistance in providing images that can be used in this campaign. Please help us promote Warren County and your community by sending us digital photographs and videos depicting whatever you think promotes healthy living. Examples include, but are not limited to:
• Hiking/biking trails, picnic groves, parks/waterways and recreation areas • Farm stands, community farmers markets, and pick-your-own farms • Choose-and-cut Christmas tree farms • Events for families, and for visitors/residents of all ages • Walkable downtown areas, historic sites • Healthcare Facilities
Photos and videos can be sent to email@example.com. For large files, please use the free online service www.wetransfer.com. The set of videos will be shared with each municipality for you use to promote your community and ask that you share it far and wide to boast about all the wonderful areas in Warren County where families and individuals can enjoy, live, work and play.
We are looking to begin production on this project in the next two weeks to have something out to the public by early spring. Any photos/videos received after that will be used for future productions.
Thank you for in advance for your time, consideration and support in showcasing Warren County.
Sincerely, Warren County Economic Development Committee

Spring warmth and showers bring on flowers and snakes!
You’ll start seeing garter snakes and water snakes in mid-March. The rest begin to move into their summer ranges around mid-May. Yet, we can see them earlier following unusually warm winters and springs.
Snakes have an important role in our ecosystem as they are both predator and prey. Even our rattlesnakes and copperheads have many predators!
The NJ Endangered and Nongame Species Conservation Act protects all our native snakes. It is illegal to kill, harm, harass or collect any parts of our native snakes.
Please be careful when driving our roads and keep a watchful eye for the odd-shaped stick!
If you believe you have a timber rattlesnake or northern copperhead on your property and would like it removed, please call DEP at 877-WARN-DEP. Please note, we do not remove non-venomous snakes as they pose no risk to humans.
