Felix Neck has been awarded a TernSOLAR challenge grant from the Tern Foundation to support the installation of a second solar panel array on the new Equipment Barn roof. In order to receive the funding, we must raise a matching $30,000—and we need your help to do it!

Summer 2019 was an incredible season for Felix Neck's Osprey, Atlantic Horseshoe Crab, breeding shorebirds, odonate, and salamander citizen science projects! Over 40 individuals trekked through woods and across beaches to collect the data needed for the conservation and management of these iconic Vineyard species.
