ENHANCING YOUR OUTDOOR CLASSROOM
OUR BOLD VISION

More than 50 years ago, our community saved this green space, not only to preserve vital habitats but to provide outdoor experiences that engage and educate all. Today, we are called together to strengthen the legacy they built by investing in our outdoor classroom for generations to come. We are embarking on a bold and exciting plan to restore, renovate and enhance our 20 acres.
