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 Red Clay Reservation, a private land trust.
