Steve Jandoli came aboard in summer 2019 as a policy advocate for the Littoral Society’s Delaware River Campaign. He will be working to secure fishable and swimmable waters in the Delaware River Basin through advocacy, education and policy work.
Prior to joining the Littoral Society, Steve was with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection’s (NJDEP) Green Acres Program for over 30 years and worked on a wide variety of statewide conservation and recreation projects and issues. In that role he led the development of the Coastal Blue Acres program (and asked former Littoral Society Executive Director Dery Bennett to serve as an advisory group member). Steve also developed Planning Incentive and Stewardship programs. He administered the federal Land and Water Fund Program and supervised the preparation of several State outdoor recreation plans.
While at NJDEP, Steve also served on the New Jersey Trails Council and managed the Natural and Cultural Resources Group, which was formed to address Hurricane Sandy impacts. In that role he obtained over $3 million in grant funding for habitat restoration and resiliency planning.
Through Green Acres, Steve was able to work with many local governments, public agencies, conservation organizations and the public, providing planning and technical assistance on conservation and recreation issues.
Steve lives in Cranford Township, NJ with his wife and has a Bachelors degree in Biology from Montclair State University. He is a member of the Cranford Environmental Commission and the Rahway River Watershed Association Advisory Board.
