We made great strides in protecting New Jersey`s open spaces in 2014 with the approval of Public Question 2, which established funding for the conservation and management of public lands, parks, farms, and historic sites. But much more needs to be done. That`s why we`re fighting for: As the most populous state in the country, New Jersey is expected to reach full expansion by mid-century. That`s why advocating for sustainable funding for the conservation of open space, farmland and public parks is a big part of what we do. Maintaining these spaces reduces destructive flooding, protects our drinking water supply, and encourages outdoor recreational activities that provide significant economic and health benefits. Working with public and nonprofit partners, the program protects open spaces and has provided hundreds of public parks and outdoor recreational facilities throughout the state of New Jersey. 13:8C-3 Definitions of open space, farmland and historic preservation.
