About the barn
The Environmental Learning Barn, the focal point of the Reserve, is a barn that dates back to 1879. It has been relocated and reconstructed and now serves as the Environmental Learning Center for the Reserve.
The barn is carefully situated to enhance the property and was reconstructed using 99% of its original barn materials.
The barn features two large open areas, animals, exhibits, a library with comfortable seating, educational resources that can be borrowed, handicapped-accessible restrooms, wireless internet, projectors, screens, laptops, and wireless microphones.
