Program Overview

Pond Site

A wide range of Environment Education topics are available; geology, dichotomous keys, weather and seasonal change, pond and stream studies, survival skills, fossils, interdependence and many more. The education staff works with each teacher or group leader to tailor experiences so that they enhance and build upon the lessons being taught within the school classroom.

Our facilities currently include multiple education sites. The Old Church Site, at 8680 Spooky Hollow Road, is a historic stone building built in 1825 that Greenacres Foundation has converted into a classroom. The adjacent field office contains modern restrooms and storage facilities. The Old Church site is surrounded by early successional fields, mature woodlands, stream habitat access, raised bed gardens and an interconnected network of trails. The Pond Site, just up the hill at 8495 Spooky Hollow Road, features two farm ponds, a bird blind, a picnic shelter as well as access to more fields, woods, trails, and pasture. The Pond Site is rustic, with no electricity or running water and a Porta-Potty supplies the necessary restroom facilities. The picnic shelter serves as our open-sided classroom.
