Flat Rock Brook Nature Association has received a $4,000 grant from the Community Chest serving Englewood, Tenafly and Englewood Cliffs to fund the nature association’s on-site educational programs and its curriculum in the Englewood public school system.
Flat Rock provides a variety of educational programs both on site and in local elementary and middle schools throughout the year, reaching approximately 4,000 school children annually. Kindergarten and second grade students in Englewood receive lessons in their schools and take field trips to the 150-acre preserve. Flat Rock Brook also offers an after-school program at the Janis E. Dismus Middle School and a popular summer camp.
The center also hosts thousands of visitors each year on its 150 acres of trails and pristine forest land.
“This generous grant will allow us to extend our programs to even more school children and help us achieve our objective of providing quality environmental education to the community,” said Stephen Wiessner, executive director of Flat Rock Brook. “The organization thrives because of the generous support of the community. As a non-profit organization, we greatly appreciate grants that help us maintain a high level of programs and enhance the experience of everyone who visits the nature center.”
