Flat Rock Brook Nature Center

Flat Rock Brook Nature Center
is a 150-acre preserve and education center situated on the western slope of the Palisades in Englewood, New Jersey. The Center was established in 1973 by citizens who were deeply committed to land conservation and environmental education.

This natural woodland is one of the last remnants of the magnificent Palisades Forest. The preserve is managed by the Flat Rock Brook Nature Association. Its purpose is to maintain and preserve the lands under its supervision as a natural sanctuary for plant and animal life in an urban area and as a natural environment available to the public for trail walks, nature study and other passive recreation.

There are 3.5 miles of marked trails, including a short wheelchair-accessible boardwalk near the parking area - the boardwalk leads to a pond, part of a former rock quarry.

There are many volunteer opportunities available at the Nature Center for both adults and students. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the Adult Volunteer Form or Student Volunteer Form and mail or fax the form or email them for additional information.
