2019 Earth Day Field Trip to Grace Farms

Admission is free!  Let's celebrate the biodiversity of nature this Earth Day.  Join us to explore Grace Farms’ 80-acre preserve and enjoy programs and activities highlighting the importance of preserving woodlands and wildlife.  Please RSVP here

Please car-pool if possible due to limited parking.  Event is Rain or Shine. All architecture is under one roof, so no need to worry about weather unless you want to walk on the grounds to the ponds, etc.  Bring a poncho if it rains on that day.

If you come in the morning, you can walk around in Grace Farms to admire their award winning architecture - all flowing like a review under the same roof.

11:00 am to 1:00 pm: Welcome and lunch together at Grace Farms "Commons" (dinning hall).  Meet Henry Hu (picture below) at the dinning hall, he will be at the corner table near the window. Lunch is "a la carte" and only credit card is accepted, no cash. No outside food is permitted.  Please place your lunch order as soon as you arrive.  You can opt to join the following Grace Farms Earth Day Program.
