One of the missions of the Friends' group is to maintain a conservancy for nature study and environmental education, using the natural habitats of the farm park as an outdoor classroom. Several citizen science monitoring programs will be offered as a means to collect information about natural phenomena occurring on farm park grounds and landscapes. Information collected will contribute to broad-scale ecological research efforts within state and regional networks.
Stay tuned for updates in 2019 about volunteer opportunities. No experience necessary. Training will be provided. Ideal activity for service groups and scout troops.
