Edison Wetlands Association Charity Profile
Edison Wetlands Association (EWA) is a grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment through conservation and the cleanup of hazardous waste sites. EWA was founded in 1989 to address issues such as open space preservation and the hazardous waste contamination at the Chemical Insecticide Corporation Superfund Site (CIC) in Edison, New Jersey. After 15 years of EWA’s advocacy, our work on CIC now serves as a national model for effective grassroots advocacy, earning us a profile in a national bestseller and the 1997 Environmental Quality Award—the USEPA’s highest honor.
Edison Wetlands Association Volunteer Information
The Edison Wetlands Association encourages community service for people of all ages. Individuals, scout troops, schools, religious groups and other organizations are invited to undertake age-appropriate projects at the Triple C Ranch and Nature Center.
Volunteers might work in the garden, tend the livestock, help with landscape maintenance, or participate in a cleanup activity that makes the Dismal Swamp Conservation Area even more scenic and beautiful for future visitors. Projects may be one-time events or long-term undertakings, extending over several visits.
