Artists, environmentalists, and butterfly enthusiasts are invited to visit the Ecosystem Farm and walk through its 1+ acre Sunflower patch. This beautiful living display of all natural flowers is both a cover crop to support pollinators and reduce weeds, and forage for heritage breed livestock. The Ecosystem Farm is a leisurely quarter mile walk from the Visitor Center to the back gate via the Pumpkin Ash trail. The trail takes you through a multi-part ecosystem of forest and wetlands, ending at the farm. Parking is available on the farm for visitors in need of assistance with mobility. To arrange a large group visit of 10 or more people, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 301-283-2113.
