Located near Hockessin, we serve as the Delaware Nature Society's headquarters and the hub for all of its activities of education and natural resource conservation. The site is open to the public year-round, features an overnight lodge for school and public groups, a seasonal butterfly house, picnic area, and four self-guided trails through a variety of habitats. Programs are offered for all ages, as well as courses for teachers. The property includes more than 242 acres and is owned by the Mt. Cuba Center. Ashland is also home to the Ashland Hawk Watch, a joint partnership between the Delaware Nature Society and the Delmarva Ornithological Society.
