Environmental Ed Programs

Re-Purpose New Jersey forms strategic partnerships with educational organizations and schools, from nursery to university and beyond. Anytime our bin is placed at a school, we provide that school with award-winning environmental education programs at no cost, tailored to the age of the students and the rich ecology of our shared region.

Eco-Tours and Nature Center

A favorite among students of all ages, our eco-tours of the Dismal Swamp Conservation Area explore a 1500-acre federal priority wetlands environment, home to over 200 species of birds, 25 species of mammals, and 24 species of reptiles and amphibians native to NJ.

The last remaining farm in northern Middlesex County, the TCR is home to a variety of rescued farm animal friends, including pot-bellied pigs, a Shetland pony, and a family of Nigerian Dwarf goats. Offers petting zoo opportunities, animal stewardship workshops, and seven gardens/orchards.

Recycling Rangers

The C.L.E.A.R. initiative (Community Leadership, Environmental Awareness, and Recycling) is a program for elementary and middle school students to learn about the benefits of recycling, environmental stewardship, and conserving resources. Upon completion, students receive a Recycling Ranger certificate.
