Mission Statement

The Stratford Ecological Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to the education of children and adults in understanding the relationships between living things and their environment, thereby fostering an appreciation of the land and all life that depends on it.

Description

Stratford Ecological Center provides unique educational opportunities for all age groups. We combine a State Nature Preserve and a demonstration farm as "living laboratories" to provide experiential education in ecology and sustainable agriculture, demonstrating the relationship between natural ecosystems and agroecosystems. We manage 236 acres of land in Delaware County, Ohio including a 95 acre State Nature Preserve with buttonbush swamps, stream and forests, 70 acres of field crops, livestock (dairy and beef cattle, goats, sheep, chickens and hogs) a sugar bush with maple sugar shack, greenhouses, a small orchard and a vegetable, herb and flower garden primarily used for education programs for grade school children. Internships in sustainable agriculture and environmental education are available during the spring, summer and fall months.
