Thank you for your interest in the Skylands Aquarium & Water Garden Group (SAWGG). We are a private social club for hobbyists living or working in northwest New Jersey. We offer a safe & friendly place for our Members to catch up, exchange ideas, and share livestock and supplies. Face-to-face fellowship among hobbyists is SAWGG’s primary purpose.

SAWGG differs from traditional aquarium societies, being incorporated as a New Jersey non-profit social club following 501c7 guidelines. We exist primarily to serve our Members – not the general public. We are required to:

  • provide our Members opportunities for personal contact, commingling, and face-to-face fellowship. SAWGG meets twice a month on Friday: live in Denville seated around tables, and virtually (Zoom), as well as via a private Facebook Group. Our Members also enjoy special events, programs, outings, and group buys. Click here for what happens at ‘SAWGGatherings’.
  • limit attendance to Members and invited guests. SAWGG meetings are not open to the general public.
  • support ourselves through membership dues, donations, and assessments (no public auctions, raffles, etc).
