The Meadowlands Environment Center was formed to increase awareness and enjoyment of our vital ecosystem. The New Jersey Meadowlands Commission and Ramapo College of New Jersey entered into a partnership in 2003 to develop a comprehensive environmental education program for schools and the general public. Together, the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission and the experienced team of educators from Ramapo College encourage the use of the environment as a classroom, increase awareness of the resources of the Meadowlands, and help communities recognize the critical issues that affect the Meadowlands District.
The Meadowlands Environment Center has hands on educational programs for grades K-12. Our experienced team of educators will introduce your students to a variety of topics while satisfying the NJCCCS. Through inquiry learning and cross-curricular activities, you and your students will experience the best of these unique wetlands.
We also provide “life-long” learning programs for young children, families, adults, older adults and members of the community living with disabilities.
