Wild New Jersey: the Book!

February 2, 2011

Wild New Jersey by David Wheeler.

Wild New Jersey by David WheelerWe’re thrilled for our friend David Wheeler, the Director of Operations for the Edison Wetlands Association (a Dodge grantee), for his newly-published book, “Wild New Jersey: Nature Adventures in the Garden State.” The book is published by Rutgers University Press. David is also the founder of  the Wild New Jersey blog.

In his book, David takes us on a year-long tour of every corner of New Jersey, exploring its diverse landscape: from the mountains and beaches, to the Pine Barrens and marshlands, teaching us about the incredible diversity of wildlife in our small, crowded state.

David “provides an entertaining overview of the diversity of wildlife in New Jersey that challenges the notion that our state is merely a crowded, overdeveloped stretch of toxic sites,” says Greg Remaud, the Deputy Director of NY/NJ Baykeeper.” It’s not often we can refer to a book about nature as a ‘page turner’.”

You can get a copy of the book directly from Rutgers Press, as well as Amazon.

And do not miss the Wild New Jersey blog, which features New Jersey focused environmental and wildlife news as well as exclusive videos. You can also follow David on Twitter @DavidHWheeler and the Wild New Jersey blog @wildnewjersey.

Congratulations, David!
