Please call 973-543-6004 with any questions!

     Come out and explore our trails, take an environmental education class, hold a green-theme birthday party, or send the kids to our popular Summer Nature Program. There's so much to see and enjoy at Schiff that it’s no wonder this is the place where “Wild Things Happen Naturally!” We have 15 miles of marked trails, and protect approximately 768 acres of land in the heart of beautiful Morris County, NJ. Schiff is rich in history, too. From Revolutionary period artifacts to vintage buildings constructed by the Boy Scouts of America during the Depression era, there are still discoveries to be made! Come out and play, hike, explore and support our efforts to protect the natural beauty of our local communities.

MISSION STATEMENT

The Schiff Natural Lands Trust, Inc., is a member-supported, community-based, non-profit organization dedicated to preserving open space, serving as a model of environmental stewardship, providing educational opportunities, and improving the ecological value of natural areas using best management practices. We maintain an active nature center and offer a variety of programs open to the public for environmental education, research and passive recreational activities consistent with the preservation of natural areas.
