We are now past the Summer Solstice which means summer is in full swing! Looking around me as I drive to my hiking destination, I see a sea of green. It is such a glorious color and it comes in a vast variety of shades!
Science & Stewardship
Our science and stewardship mission is to conserve our region’s biodiversity, while creating an environment for exceptional educational opportunities.
Biodiversity is the variety of life on earth, including plants, animals and microorganisms.
To keep our ecosystems healthy, we must commit to supporting the plants, animals, and other organisms that call them home.
Our preserve’s greatest threats
threaten the future of our forests
displace native populations of plants and animals
alters wetland ecosystems and quickens lake fill-in
shifts natural cycles on both global and local scales
If you think back to your childhood years, one of your memories may be of carefree summer days spent playing in the mud. Perhaps you made a mud pie fit for a king, an epic castle or just enjoyed the satisfying squelch of mud between your fingers and toes. International Mud Day on June 29 is a chance to reconnect with those childhood memories and introduce a whole new generation to the joys of messy play.
