New Jersey may have a relatively small landmass, but it supports an abundant natural environment that provides countless benefits to society. Its urban, suburban, and rural landscapes coexist with forests, rivers, streams, beaches, wetlands, estuaries, bays, and the ocean in a dynamic relationship shaped by use. Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) scientists and specialists devise an array of programs designed to sustainably manage our natural resources. From environmental remediation, to conducting ecological assessment and research, to conserving and protecting our environment, NJAES collaborates with businesses, government agencies, and residents to improve air and water quality, build rain gardens, restore riparian buffers to streams, monitor climate indicators, and implement best management practices for land use.
