J.A. McFaul Environmental Center

The James A. McFaul Environmental Center is dedicated to providing a space where Bergen County residents can learn about and experience the natural environment. The Bergen County Parks Department took what used to be a 81-acre pig farm and created a wildlife sanctuary with nature trails, gardens, and educational science exhibits.
