Who are these cool dudes in the photo here? They are Jason Hajek, Ryan Tomczyk, and James Preisendanz. And they are part of the Bear Run Environmental Team, a grassroots group of environmental activists and conservationists working in the heart of the Ramapo Mountain State Forest.

Their work involves growing native plants and pollinators to be replanted to restore the natural habitat of the state forest, working year round removing invasive plants in the area, as well as organizing a huge variety of conservation projects in the forest.

Their group is only two years old and already they are making a huge impact. So lets give some LIKES to MEVO’s newest partner in the North Jersey environmental movement.
