Fairview Farm is a 170-acre wildlife preserve, and the perfect outdoor classroom! With over five miles of trails, a pond, meadows, forest, and a bird and butterfly garden, there is plenty to observe, discover and experience. This outdoor setting can host upwards of 150 students at once, with ample bus parking, picnicking areas and restroom facilities.
Our historic barn complex includes a rustic nature classroom and indoor-outdoor interpretive workshop. The ADA accessible Betty Merck Science and Education Center on campus contains a children’s exploration room and a large community meeting room.
