A Trustee of the Accokeek Foundation for more than 10 years, Gene was one of our most loyal and dedicated volunteers. He spent countless hours working to advance the enduring legacy of the National Colonial Farm and to elevate the Foundation’s historical and agricultural interpretation. He emphasized the importance of sharing the stories of both the “yeoman farmer” and the Piscataway people.
Gene had a particular fondness for the Foundation’s heritage livestock conservation program, especially the American Milking Devons. His extensive work on the farm, in the barnyard, and in the boardroom leaves an indelible mark on the Accokeek Foundation. His leadership inspired us, and his influence will be felt in the Foundation’s work for years to come. To remember Gene, the Accokeek Foundation’s Board of Trustees has established a memorial fund in his honor.
Your contribution to the Eugene B. Roberts, Jr. Memorial Fund ensures we can continue to share what Gene loved about the beauty and abundance of this landscape in Piscataway Park, for generations to come.
