Monmouth Conservation Foundation

MONMOUTH CONSERVATION FOUNDATION is a non-profit organization dedicated to acquiring, holding, and preserving open space in Monmouth County.

Over 200 years ago Monmouth County was a farm community whose entire population could be seated in the present day PNC Arts Center. Now the County sits in the heart of the eastern "megalopolis" containing one-fourth of the nation's population. To the citizens of 1778 there would always be enough land, water, and air. Today we know these resources are finite and delicate.

Almost twenty-five years ago, eleven members of the organization's steering committee signed a certificate on August 1977 naming the Monmouth Conservation Foundation (MCF) as a tax-exempt corporation in the state of New Jersey. Then, as now, the Foundation's mission is to acquire, hold, preserve and protect the open lands in Monmouth County.
