On Monday, 1/27/2014, NCPP will award the winners of the NCPP 2014 Tree Contest during the Board of Education Meeting at 6:30 at John H. Walker Middle School.  We have been working with the Nutley Schools Science Coordinator, Kent Bania and the 4 teachers of Environmental Sciences and developed a Common Assessment that was taught to about 300 9th grade students. They were then assigned to write about a Nutley tree and discuss it’s environment, niche and ecosystem. They submitted an essay and a picture of their chosen tree. 

Please show your support of the project and join us Monday night!

Photos from NCPP’s  “Meet & Greet” with Township Officials posted at the photo gallery!

The NCPP hosted an innovative “Civic Night” at the Church Street Museum Wednesday September 25th, which succeeded in its challenge of bringing together the town’s most active citizens with the decision-makers who make Nutley work. We invited the Mayor and Board of Commissioners, Planning, Zoning and Historical Society Boards, along with the Historic Preservation and Shade Tree Committees. Although all of the governing boards and committees hold open hearings, our goal for this event was to enable the township residents to “meet and greet” our officials in an informal setting and encourage conversations about the direction of Nutley for 2013/2014. The NCPP Board was excited to facilitate this fun and informative event. 

Private Eco Cruise 10/13 is Sold Out!

Please see the newsletter for more information about the cruise, which we plan on holding again next spring.
