Community Engagement

The Crow’s Nest Research Center goals are to: 

  • Serve as a giant outdoor classroom in our community to facilitate environmental education and research;
  • Understand better our natural surroundings through quiet engagement and observation;
  • Model land conservation stewardship and best practices in landscape management;
  • Support and propagate native flora and fauna;
  • Inspire respect for the connections between conservation and civic responsibility;
  • Share a love for the great outdoors while respecting others and the land.

How can you, your family, your school community, or your organization engage with the Crow’s Nest Research Center’s 132 acres of conserved land within the framework of these stated goals? 

Are you interested in volunteering to help the CNRC with control of invasive plants and other occasional projects?

The CNRC considers requests to use the property for conservation and educational purposes.  Send your inquiry to Sophie Lynn at
