About usIn 2002, a group of citizens shared a vision to preserve an historic family farm in Milford to serve as a nature preserve and outdoor destination. A true grassroots effort, and against all odds, the foundation has raised almost $4 million to permanently preserve 190 acres of unaltered open space along with its natural and cultural assets. This land includes rivers, streams, wooded hillsides, prairie, wooded stream side and isolated wetlands on a compact, easily-walkable site in the heart of Milford.
