GLADSTONE, N.J.--Even though the hunter/jumper competition at Monmouth at the Team had to be cancelled this year, the generous Monmouth at the Team family is still having an impact on The Nature Conservancy and all they do to protect the animals, plants and landscapes in New Jersey.
The Monmouth at the Team hunter/jumper competition, held at Hamilton Farm, home of the USET Foundation Headquarters, will be held next Aug. 16-23, 2021.
Officials said plans are moving forward for an amazing show and the best Bobcat Derby yet.
Due to the generosity of the Monmouth at the Team family, The Nature Conservancy is on track to reach 50 percent of the 3,500-acre goal for protected Bobcat Alley habitat in northwestern New Jersey by 2021.
There is much more work to be done, but we should celebrate together the funding and awareness we have raised so far for the project through the Bobcat Derby at Monmouth at the Team, said show officials.
THE NATURE Conservancy invites you to hear the latest Bobcat Alley updates by joining two free virtual sessions exclusive to project donors and friends of Monmouth at the Team.

The Appalachian Super Range will be on Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2020 at 1 p.m.
The Appalachian Mountains connect wildlife habitat at a continental scale, from the Blue Ridge Mountains in Alabama to the forests of Maine.
As the climate changes, this 2,000-mile long pathway for nature is irreplaceable to allow wildlife movement.
At the same time, Appalachian forests are also a hidden-in-plain-sight solution to climate change.
In this presentation, Nature Conservancy experts will discuss the urgency of connectivity within the Appalachians, and how New Jersey’s own Bobcat Alley is a critical land link for animals moving along the range. Bring your questions!
Then Cookies, Cocoa and Wildcats will be held Thursday, Jan. 14, 2021 at 1 p.m.
The Nature Conservancy will share results from wildlife road crossing studies, check in with local landowners and virtually tour of some iconic Bobcat Alley sites, including the region’s rich forests, sweeping overlooks, rocky outcroppings and rippling riverbanks that are so vital for the survival of this species (and many others!) in New Jersey.
*Register for this event by Jan. 4 and they will send you a bobcat paw print cookie and hot cocoa packet by mail in advance to enjoy during the session.
