Lillian Pitkin Schenck Fund Awards Flat Rock Brook $5,000

IMG 3690webThe Lillian Pitkin Schenck Fund recently granted $5,000 to Flat Rock Brook to support our Environmental Education Program. Flat Rock Brook has a long history of producing quality environmental education programming.  We have been teaching children and the public about nature and related topics for nearly 45 years. Last year, we reached over 5,100 participants with the message of the value of the natural world and their power to protect it. 

Our environmental education program offers onsite field trips and outreach that serve approximately 40 area schools from nearly thirty separate municipalities in New Jersey and New York.  Flat Rock Brook also offers a highly popular summer nature day camp. Public programs on a variety of natural history subjects are also available and open to the general public.  Our experienced staff, including an education director and staff naturalist, manages a team of volunteer trail guides that assist in delivering programs to students each year.  

Flat Rock Brook thanks the Lillian Pitkin Schenck Fund for its ongoing support that helps make this important program available to the community.

Flat Rock Brook thanks PSE&G Foundation for its generous support in the amount of $2,500 that will help fund our 2018 Spectacular Science Curriculum, an afterschool science enrichment program for middle school students.

Spectacular Science, a STEM curriculum, is designed for 7th grade students to connect and find inspiration with the wonders of science through hands-on science experiments and natural explorations.  The primary goal of this program is to engage middle school students in STEM subjects while broadening their learning experience.

Participants work in groups gaining team-building skills while employing critical thinking and problem solving. Classes are restricted to small groups with a maximum of 25 participants. The lessons are led by our education team.

Currently the program is offered at Janis E. Dismus Middle School in Englewood, NJ.

Welcome Siena Stucki

Flat Rock Brook is pleased to announce the arrival of Siena Stucki as our new part-time naturalist. Siena has been around Flat Rock Brook for most of her life. She started as a participant in our Summer Nature Day Camp. Her love for Flat Rock only grew from there. She has been a counselor for the camp and a volunteer at our preserve. It seems only natural that she is now happily joining the education team. Siena holds two Bachelor’s Degrees from Stockton University; one in Marine Science and one in Biology. While at Stockton, she was director of the Honors Program and an active member of the Quidditch Team. She is very excited about teaching the public about the trails and the animals found at Flat Rock Brook.
