This unique setting provides opportunities to delve into the interdependence of people, land, and wildlife. Visit pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, and cows in the farmyard; learn how crops are sustainably grown on-site; walk the trails to explore field, forest, and wetland habitat; and observe resident owls, hawks, and a fox in native wildlife exhibits.
