Seed the Future Campaign

Fernwood – A legacy of preservation and education for today… and the future!

Every day, people seek havens for solitude, reflection, learning, and celebration. Every year, thousands of adults, students, and community leaders choose Fernwood as their place in nature to, as Albert Einstein said, “understand everything better.”

Fernwood’s natural, steep, wooded ravines, flowing springs, river frontage, marshes, and diverse wildlife provide versatile setting for personal growth, renewal, and awareness.

It is here where the next generation learns about the connectedness of nature, and where organizations and their employees connect to plan for the future. It is here where visitors from near and far take a break from life’s usual path, and where couples and families celebrate life’s new paths and cherished milestones. It is here where more than 250 volunteers enrich the lives of others, as well as their own, by keeping the sparkle on the jewel that is Fernwood.
