The Natural and Working Lands Strategy (NWLS) aims to mitigate the effects of climate change through the protection, restoration, and strategic management of New Jersey’s natural and working lands. These lands include those that contribute the most to the storage and sequestration of greenhouse warming gases: forests, agricultural lands, wetlands, developed lands, and aquatic resources and habitats.
