At Evergreen, we believe in learning by doing.

Using our 130-acre historic farm and surrounding forests as an outdoor classroom, we offer opportunities for hands-on learning about the world around us. Our abundant natural resources provide a meaningful place for children and youth, in particular, to learn, grow, and thrive. Learn more about our mission and vision here.
