Dog licensing IIIThe Washington Township Health Department would like to make residents aware that summer is a good time to prepare for the unexpected “emergency”. Whether the emergency is weather related or simply an extended power outage, the Health Department urges you to have plans in place. While making those plans, please keep your household pets in mind. Domestic dogs and cats need to be considered if and when you need to leave your home to seek shelter, heat or air conditioning in another location. We ask that you keep our Emergency Domestic Pet Accommodation list available with your emergency lists and supplies. This list was compiled by the Health Department in cooperation with local veterinary hospitals and kennels to make options available to our residents for their pets in case of emergency.   We also urge you to keep your pets' vaccinations up to date and have those records available so that you could take advantage of these accommodations if the need arises.  Please click HERE to view and download the list.

Morris County Park Commission's 2017/2018  Deer Management Program. 

Schooleys Mountain Park is included in this years program. This program and its implementation are consistent with the regulations of the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife.  

Please note this is not a recreational hunt. The controlled management program is being conducted to help reduce and maintain deer populations at level that allow for the re-establishment of native plant communities within the park system that have been severely damaged by deer overbrowsing. These communities are critical for the sustainability of our preserved areas and for the support of native wildlife species. The Morris County Park Commission has attempted to reduce the public inconvienience of park closings by limiting the number of dates on which the parks will be closed to the minimum number that we feel can ensure a successful program.
