Whats drives the Rancocas Creek National Water Trail Initiative ? Risk. Who drove risk in NJ’s and the United States…NJ’s own wizard of Menlo Park. Risk means never letting go. Risk means allways pushing. Risk means question, confront and challenge. Edison the man, father of a NJ Governor, inventor, peaceful chilling, movie maker and all around good guy. Any wonder he has his own, here in NJ, National Historic Park.
