We steward nearly 400 acres of forest land and wetland in order to protect, improve, restore, and sustain it as wildlife habitat.
  • We work to preserving and improve the quality of water resources (freshwater biomes) including riparian (streams and rivers) as well as ponds (including small seasonal vernal pools) and wetlands.
  • We strive to maintain the highest biodiversity possible on our land.
