What's Included

Discover the unseen world living inside Greenacres’ pond. Participants will peer into the pond with a viewscope and then use dip nets, plankton tows, and dredges to collect all kinds of pond critters. Microscopes will allow us to take an up close look at what we have collected and make a journal detailing our microworld.

About This Organizer

Greenacres Foundation is a non-profit, private operating foundation established in 1988 by Louis and Louise Nippert. The Nipperts purchased Greenacres Farm in 1949 and wanted to preserve the land for the education and enjoyment of future generations.

 

Greenacres Foundation mission is:

- To preserve for the public an area reflecting the traditional environment of Indian Hill and its historical significance by preserving Greenacres in its current state of woodland and farmland.
- To encourage conservation and appreciation of nature by providing the public, particularly children, opportunities to study plant and animal life in their natural settings.
- To encourage appreciation of music and culture by providing facilities and an atmosphere that will encourage artists to display their talents for all age groups.
