New Jersey’s Natural Wonders

“The Reservoir’s photography program provides youth with a learning opportunity and something interesting to do in the summer. I took this program very seriously and discovered why the Reservoir is called a hidden jewel—because it is.” - D'Angelo Barrow

“The Reservoir’s photography program provides youth with a learning opportunity and something interesting to do in the summer. I took this program very seriously and discovered why the Reservoir is called a hidden jewel—because it is.”
- D’Angelo Barrow

Last August, guided by renowned photojournalist Trix Rosen, seven Jersey City teens took part in the Reservoir Alliance sponsored photography workshop “Through an Open Gate: Jersey City Reservoir 3″. The outstanding body of work was exhibited at the Jersey City Artist Studio Tour and in the John W. Meagher Rotunda Gallery in City Hall. Last month photographer D’Angelo Barrow was notified that this photograph was chosen to be exhibited in New Jersey’s Natural Wonders Exhibit in South Brunswick. Congratulations D’Angelo!

The Gallery is open from April 11th until June 30th at the South Brunswick Municipal Building. Visit their page here.

Our Reservoir Year End Appeal


The trees around our “hidden jewel” have lost their blazing foliage, and snowflakes are gently falling onto our rippling lake. A beautiful way for nature to tell us that another Reservoir year is over, and what an inspiring year it was!


Your continued support at this year’s end will keep our programs and long-term planning going in 2014. This year, over 500 neighbors kayaked, and young and old fished for sunnies and bass. Visitors strolled on the 20-foot stone walls and gazed over our 13 acres.

With the Reservoir as their science lab, students from PS 28 created a national award-winning project (click here.) Meanwhile, “Through An Open Gate: JC Reservoir #3″ (click here) displayed young photographers’ work at City Hall and the Studio Arts Tour.

Next year, the Reservoir Alliance will begin a multi-year program with the City of Jersey City to transform the Reservoir into year-round natural and historic parkland, developing recreation opportunities while preserving the landmarked buildings and conserving the Reservoir’s unique ecosystem.

But this remarkable transformation can’t happen without you! Please make a tax-deductible donation today to the Jersey City Reservoir Preservation Alliance to help sustain today’s programs and bring about tomorrow’s plans.

Be a part of making this happen!
