All contributions to the Coalition to Save South Mountain Reservation are processed through our non-profit partner, Our Green West Orange. Every dollar collected is used for protecting South Mountain Reservation. We are all residents and volunteers with a passion for the environment, safety, ethical development, youth education, financial transparency, & honest environmental practices.
Essex County Public Information Director, Anthony Puglisi, shared that he is listening to what the public wants. We at the Coalition feel that perhaps Mr. Puglisi needs to hear from every Essex County resident regarding this (at least) $10.1 million animal entertainment stage.
