Welcome to Flat Rock Brook

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

One of the last remnants of the Palisades Forest, the preserve is managed by the Flat Rock Brook Nature Association whose mission is to maintain the 150-acre preserve as a natural sanctuary for plant and wildlife in our urban area and as a nature preserve available to the public for trail walks, nature study and other passive recreation. We provide environmental education programs for thousands of students and the general public each year to create an understanding and appreciation of nature and to instill a sense of responsibility to protect it for our and future generations.

A 3.6 mile network of self-guiding trails leads to a cascading stream, wetlands, pond, wildflower meadows, quarry cliffs and woodlands. The diversity of the natural landscape allows visitors to observe a remarkable array of birds and other wildlife. Flat Rock Brook’s trails and picnic area are free and open to the public 365 days a year from dawn to dusk.

Flat Rock Brook is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization supported by memberships, donations and grants. You can help support Flat Rock Brook by becoming a member or making a tax-deductible donation.
