Since its incorporation in 1977 the Demarest Nature Center Association has cared for a 55-acre parcel of land bordered by Columbus Road on the west and County Road on the east.  The Demarest Nature Center is open to all every day of the year.  In addition to protecting woods, vernal ponds, meadows, and a section of the Tenakill Brook, as well as establishing and maintaining walking trails, the center seeks to educate everyone about the beauty of nature and the importance of preserving our environment.  Your membership dollars go towards sponsorship of environmental education programs for kindergarten through the fourth grade in the Demarest schools, and a yearly scholarship given to a local high school senior who plans to pursue environment-related studies in college.  Your membership also helps support our birdhouse/bird feeder building program, our Easter Egg Hunt, our annual photo contest, Breakfast in the Woods (free to all members), and the Craft Show at Oktoberfest.  The Demarest Nature Center Association is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, run solely by volunteers and receives no funding from the Borough of Demarest.

Residents of Demarest receive all DNCA mailings as postal patrons. Non-resident members receive DNCA mailings by 1st class mail.
