  • Latest News: 

    NNJTU's Annual Flat Brook clean-up taking place this coming Saturday, April 13th, meet at  Schaffers Bridge in Sandyston.

    Coffee and doughnuts will be available at 8:30am, and th e clean-up begins 9:00am.  It usually runs until about 11:30am, followed by lunch (optional).   

    What to Bring:  

    - The chapter will supply large garbage bags and have extra work gloves available.  

    - Some additional items you might want to bring along:  insect/tick repellent, sturdy shoes, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, bottled water, rain jacket as needed, and a grabber/poker for picking up hard-to-reach trash.   

    Area:  The clean-up effort focuses on the pathways, dirt roads, stream banks, and parking areas surrounding different sections of the Flat Brook.  We typically don't enter the water, so waders aren't necessary.   New this year:  Since we'll be covering select portions of the roadway near the stream and bridge crossings, the chapter will be receiving several hundred dollars from Sandyston Township under the NJ Clean Communities program.  We plan to use these funds towards student scholarships.   

    Lunch We're having lunch together at the Layton Hotel Tavern.  Lunch will be paid for by the chapter -- with the exception of alcoholic beverages, for which each person will be responsible for his/her own.  

    Afternoon Fishing For those interested following lunch, our fishing trip coordinator Glenn Hofmann has planned for us to spend some quality time together fishing the Flat Brook.  Please plan to join.  

    In the morning, please meet at Schaffers Bridge in Sandyston:  

    The parking lot is on the left side of the road, immediately after crossing the bridge traveling northwest on Route 560.  The “bridge” is just a slightly elevated roadway over the stream.  Schaffers Bridge, which crosses over the Big Flat Brook, is located on County Route 560 (also known as Tuttles Corner Dingmans Road) in Sandyston.  The bridge is approximately ½ mile off of Route 206.  The turn-off from Route 206 for Route 560 is about 1 mile north of the main entrance for Stokes State Forest at Coursen Road.  There's an Italian restaurant (may be closed down) at the corner of Routes 206 and 560.  

    Please let me know if you won't be able to participate, or if you have any questions.   

    Thanks - Dean Blumetti
