Located at 433 Van Nostrand Avenue in Englewood, 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.
One of the last remnants of the 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 our urban area and as a natural environment available to the public for trail walks, nature study and other passive recreation.
The eagerly awaited Great Horned Owl arrived from Washington State on Saturday, March 8 at Kennedy Airport and is now a permanent resident of Flat Rock Brook’s aviary. Along with the other birds in the aviary, she will become part of the Nature Center’s education programs both at Flat Rock Brook and at area schools.
Flat Rock Brook trails and picnic area are open free to the public every day from dawn to dusk.
