|The NJ Department of Environmental Protection created the New Jersey Reenactment Advisory Council in November 1988. Its purpose was to create a forum for discussing the safety, authenticity and public awareness of living history events in New Jersey. In March 1996, the Council was renamed the New Jersey Living History Advisory Council.
The Council is comprised of fifteen members appointed by the Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection. Nine are citizen members from the historical reenactment and museum communities. Six are state historic site administrators and staff.
The Council holds five open meetings during the year at various locations throughout the State. The public is invited to attend and address the Council on issues related to living history programs and military reenactments.
