The project began in September of 1991 with a wildlife garden and native plant nursery. It includes three nature trails and demonstrations of innovative windbreaks, forest restoration and erosion control. We offer regular workshops on a wide variety of natural history, silvicultural and related topics – birds, wildflowers, mushrooms, pruning, transplanting, papermaking, basketmaking – as well as tours of the property and our work. The nursery and wildlife garden attract special attention, showcasing native trees, shrubs and wildflowers.
