Naturally occurring seedlings of trees in the preserve forest which are too crowded for survival are offered to people willing to plant them in optimal conditions for the purpose of re-forestation on treeless lands.
Outside of the Preserve we offer a pictorial presentation about the Preserve and our ecologically friendly lifestyle to schools and groups. This may be combined with a musical presentation by Harp & Harmony. Contact us for booking dates.
