$14,000 Community Development Block Grant Awarded to Flat Rock Brook

The county of Bergen awarded Flat Rock Brook a $14,000 Community Development Block Grant to support our education program, "Adaptations for all Occasions".  This curriculum will be delivered in Englewood Public Schools and onsite at Flat Rock Brook for students in grades K-5.  Our program is designed to supplement learning about animal adaptations that is being taught in science classes.  Our lessons meet the New Jersey Student Learning Standards.  Students will experience real-world connections to animal habitats and adaptations.  Studies confirm that experiential education that engages students in hands-on learning results in stronger retention rates and improved academic outcomes.  We thank the county for this generous grant that will enable us to bring together children's wonder of nature and environmental education.
