Down Jersey — an NJN film! CU, along with the National Park Service, produced this video, which explores the cultural landscape of the New Jersey Delaware Bayshore.

Down Jersey — Celebrating Our Sense of Place! CU, with help from NJ Bayshore teachers, compiled lesson plans and activities designed to instruct students in the elements depicted in the Down Jersey film.

Scholarship! CU established the Constance Jost Memorial Art Scholarship in recognition of the powerful advocacy role art plays in preserving our natural heritage.

Conservation Initiatives! CU has participated in The Maurice River Basin Wetlands Conservation Project with NJ Division of Fish, Game and Wildlife. And as a member of the Stockton Alliance we have advocated and achieved a stable source of funding toward open space protection in New Jersey.

Greenways! CU continues to advocate for the creation of land buffers which protect river segments throughout the watershed.

Recognition! Members of CU regularly receive local, state, and national awards for their contributions toward conservation and community projects.

In 1988 Citizens United began to issue an annual list of accomplishments. Each year we would add to this list. By 1997 it became unwieldy and repetitive, and since then we have opted for an annual report. These are the past issues of this statement. Many of our projects are ongoing.


This is the extensive list of annual accomplishments and ongoing activities. It is updated annually and invariably it omits much of what is accomplished.
