The Hilltop Conservancy works with many different partner organizations to fulfill its stewardship mission in the Hilltop Reservation. We:

  • Have a formal partnership agreement with Essex County (as landowner), making us eligible for grant funding.
  • Utilize technical advice from the US Fish & Wildlife Service, Ecological Solutions, LLC and the NJ Audubon Society for wildlife habitat restoration.
  • Leverage interns and GIS / GPS tools from the New Jersey Invasive Species Strike Team for invasive plant control.
  • Work with Grove Landscaping, Inc. and Verona Township Department of Public Works on efforts requiring heavy equipment (e.g., large debris removal, tree pit digging).
  • Maintain memberships in the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference and North American Butterfly Association.
