Volunteers Needed: Spring Work Day

Are you a Facebook Friend of Fallen Timbers, but have never had a chance to volunteer for any of our events? Now is the time! We need you, and all our loyal volunteers, to join us.

Please come to Fallen Timbers on Saturday to pitch in and help with our big spring clean-up around the property to prepare it for field trips and visits from the students, teachers and public during the spring and summer seasons. All ages can help!

Come when you can and stay as long as you’re able. If you work up an appetite and are planning to join us for lunch, just let us know you’re coming so there will be plenty of food for all our helpers. To RSVP for lunch let us know how many will be in your group by: commenting on this event on our Facebook page, sending an email to friendsoffallentimbers@live.com, or leaving a message for Lynn at 920-833-6432.

Keep up with all our events on our Calendar page.



#MapleSyrupSeason Update: It’s boil day!

#MapleSyrupSeason Update: It’s boil day! The syruping process is such a neat lesson for visiting students. We’re grateful to have this gorgeous, custom-built maple syruping cabin to walk the students through the process of boiling the sap down into syrup. If you haven’t seen the Cartier Continuing Education cabin yet, it is only a quick walk from the main building. Go peek in the windows and let us know if you can smell the syrup cooking!



Maple Syrup Season 2017 has Begun

Maple syrup season
 has official kicked off at Fallen Timbers! Did you know that the public is welcome to visit on weekends and weekdays after 2:30p.m.? It’s true! If you don’t have plans this weekend, go take a peek in the sap buckets and walk the trails! Shoutout of thanks to Matt, the Director of Fallen Timbers, for sharing these pics.
