NJ TIC Info

Postby Twism86 on December 19th, 2016, 10:16 am

Hi all,

So my girlfriend is an environmental educator at the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum in Short Hills (right by the train station). She runs education programs that use some animals they have in their nature center building, many of which are local to NJ and the area. One thing they dont have are any local fish! So here is my question, has TIC ever sponsored a tank not a school and could a nature center qualify? If not, is there still a way for her to get info on tank set up and a way to get brook trout?

If TIC is not an option I am considering having GST provide some funding if donations could be obtained and use whats left in the donation paypal from years ago.

Thanks for any insight!!! Here is their website for any curious people: http://hartshornarboretum.org/

TIC does provide eggs and food to non-schools {Manasquan Reservoir Environmental Center}. TIC does not sponsor tanks, at least not to any significant degree as far as I know. The cost for set up is about $1200 for tank and chiller and is born by the school or from third party donation. The hatchery has all the info on their web site.

In a word, Yes. Just contact Jessica Griglak at the Pequest Education Center as she is our TIC Coordinator for the state. I happen to know state council has funding set aside just for TIC....
