Wildlife Grant


$10,000 Grant: Wildlife Interaction Plan, Park Ridge, Bergen County

The Borough of Park Ridge is planning to create a Wildlife Interaction Plan for the Electric Lake area and Pascack Brook which extends through the center of the borough. In the past ten years, there have been numerous projects to improve the infrastructure of the Lake and Brook, including the rebuilding of the Hydro Dam, creating a Historic Museum at the Hydro Electric building, and installing a new Footbridge over the Pascack Brook. These projects have enhanced the Infrastructure of Electric Lake, the historic value of Park Ridge and have created improved accessibility in the area for the community; however, they have not focused on integrating a Wildlife Interaction Plan to sustain the environment for wildlife.  The grant will now provide the plan.
