Spring Valley Nature Club Meeting June 6, 2018 7:00 pm

Meet the Farm Team! This very special program will be presented by Spring Valley’s Farm Operations Coordinator, Jon Kuester who will give a presentation on the Volkening Heritage Farm, discussing its role as a living history museum at Spring Valley and how it differs from a commercial production farm in its goals and operation. He will also share information on the farm’s livestock, explain how animals are used at the Farm, which historic breeds are selected, and how the livestock is cared for by volunteers and staff. Finally, for those who are interested, Jon and staff will provide a short horse-drawn wagon ride from the Nature Center out through our restored prairies. An informative and fun presentation for all!
