New Jersey boasts some of the most beautiful natural treasures in the nation. Scott Garrett grew up in the Fifth District and is raising his family here. His experiences from childhood and his intense desire to see our natural resources protected for future generations to come have given him an unparalleled sense of stewardship to the land.
Preserving Open Space: During his time in Congress, Scott has been an outspoken advocate of preserving open space in New Jersey and is a proud co-sponsor of legislation to protect tens of thousands of acres of open space and forests in Northern New Jersey.
Protecting our Natural Resources: Scott Garrett led the effort in the House to have the Musconetcong River in Warren County designated as a national "Wild and Scenic River", and was pleased to secure much-needed funding for the ambitious clean-up effort at Greenwood Lake in Passaic County.
Scott Garrett remains committed to preserving and protecting our open space and natural resources for the benefit of current and future generations.
