From THE STATE WE'RE IN by Michele S. Byers, Executive Director, NJ Conservation Foundation, March 4, 2011 Land is its own best advocate. Few indeed are those who can walk through the Garden State's spectacular natural areas and not want to see more land saved. This spring, let the land speak to you: Join the Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge! The Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge invites people to walk 100 miles across the state - from Trenton to New York City. The idea springs from a partnership between the FreeWalkers (www.freewalkers.org), a long distance walking group, and the East Coast Greenway Alliance (www.greenway.org). Accept the Challenge and you can join any - or all - of three group walks along different sections of the trail, or complete the 100 miles at your own pace and schedule. Each section of the Cross-Jersey Challenge has its own website, complete with routes, maps, descriptions and frequently asked questions.
