Mission Statement

Our mission: To create a destination and educational resource that inspires exploration, appreciation, and preservation of the natural environment and local history.


We're the Autrey Mill Nature Preserve Association, a Non-Profit (501)(c3) organization that operates the preserve and historic buildings and provides all the environmental, heritage, and event programming that is offered to the public.

The beginnings of Autrey Mill date to a 1988 grassroots effort by community advocates to save the woodlands from development, prevent the loss of the old mill site, and halt the demolition of historic buildings situated on the property. In 1989 the Autrey Mill Nature Preserve Association, Inc. was formed as a non-profit organization to operate, protect and improve the preserve.

The beautiful Autrey Mill of today was built over a 24-year period under the leadership of our non-profit organization's Board and its talented staff, with the vital help of generous public and private supporters, and by harnessing the indispensable work of volunteers. We continue to improve the facilities while protecting the natural environment and preserving the history of the area, creating a local asset and regional attraction.

Autrey Mill operates and survives with community support in the form of donations, membership, grants, business sponsorships, and volunteer labor.

Please consider becoming a member or making a donation to help us keep Autrey Mill operating and vibrant.
