The New Jersey Audubon Society fosters environmental awareness and a conservation ethic; protects New Jersey’s birds, animals, and plants, especially endangered and threatened species, and promotes the preservation of New Jersey’s valuable natural habitats. NJAS is a privately supported, not-for-profit, statewide membership organization. Founded in 1897 and one of the oldest independent Audubon societies, NJAS has no connection with the National Audubon Society.
The Scherman-Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary, owned and operated by the New Jersey Audubon Society, is located on 276 acres of woodland, field, and floodplain habitat that is home to over 200 species of wildlife over the course of a year. The Sanctuary, located in Bernardsville, is open to the public.
