Nature Program Co-operative (NPC), is a way to broaden the spectrum of the nature groups, organizations, and places in Bergen County. NPC consist of approximately 15 partners pooling their resources. With budget restrictions and loss of revenue this is a good idea.
For example, each partner of NPC will have a chance to conduct an outdoor activity or an indoor educational program. The partners’ members and supporters will be able to use member discounts at any of the other partners’ events. Each partner’s newsletters will advertise these events.
A Co-op is a great way to utilize the knowledge and resources of each partner and it is a win-win for each partner. On Sunday, July 25, 2010, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. there will be a program, “Butterfly Day at DeKorte Park”. This event will be hosted by Bergen County Audubon Society and Meadowlands Commission .
The 15 partners of the Nature Program Co-operative are:
- Bergen County Audubon Society
- Bergen SWAN
- Closter Nature Center
- Demarest Nature Center
- Flat Rock Brook Nature Center
- The Fyke Nature Association
- Greenbrook Sanctuary
- Hackensack Riverkeeper
- Lorrimer Sanctuary
- Meadowlands Environment Center
- Palisades Interstate Park
- Teaneck Creek Conservancy
- Tenafly Nature Center
- Watershed Ambassadors
- Weis Ecology Center
July 29, Hackensack Riverkeeper will be the host for their program, “First Fall Eco-Cruise of the Year”. Fall in July? It is the fall migration for the migratory birds; so bring your binoculars and have a great day on the river.
