What we're about

BACKGROUND

In the late 1800’s the Palisades, now a National Natural Monument (June 1983) were under threat of extinction. They were saved by New Jersey’s Governor Foster M. Voorhees, New York’s Governor Theodore Roosevelt and the NJ State Federation of Women’s Clubs. These visionaries had the foresight to preserve this truly remarkable gem of nature that was formed 200 million years ago.
