Meeting night 2nd Thursday of each month at 7:30 PM but subject to change. Please check Township calendar for updates.

The Township of West Caldwell's Environmental Commission was approved by the Council in the mid 1970s. It has public meetings the second Thursday of the month at 7:30 p.m. in the Municipal Building.

Over the past several years, the commission has worked toward the long-term development of Wrensch Park into a passive park. Presently a half loop trail is being considered that will be cleared by a group of volunteers from the James Caldwell Environmental Club. A member from the NJ Audubon Society has also walked the park and will give us helpful tips on how to attract birds so that bird watching will be made available to our citizens. It also is overseeing the streetscaping along the islands of Bloomfield Avenue. It has reinstated the Beautification Award given out each year to five businesses whose property is maintained and landscaped in a level that is worthy of this award.

By means of this web page, we hope to keep our citizens informed of issues that affect our environment and our community. We hope to also offer helpful tips on gardening and landscaping around your home for whichever season we are in. Any input is always welcomed from the public.
