What The Property Offers

Since we received the property as a generous private gift in 1973, members of the Lois Green-Sligo Chapter have worked hard to both maintain the land’s natural beauty, as well as to utilize conservation methods that have preserved the land, and prepared it to be a self-sustaining environment for years to come.

Soil stabilization, water controls, tree planting, the construction of a one acre pond and a new bow hunting program to control the deer herd are just some of the methods used to contribute to the health and vitality of the land and resident wildlife.  The success of these measures made our Chapter grounds something of a showcase of conservation methods to other organizations, agencies, and private landowners.

Today, the 63.5 acres of the Lois Green-Sligo Chapter offer members and visitors a variety of landscapes and activities.  Dense woods, wild berries and nuts, groves of pine, rolling fields and the pond represent many of the natural environments that used to be so plentiful in the region, and are home to a wide range of plant and animals.

The property also offers facilities that make gatherings, large and small, convenient and pleasurable.  An expansive pavilion with a concrete floor is the cornerstone of the grounds.  Plenty of picnic tables, electricity, ample and convenient parking, and bathrooms satisfy the needs for almost any outdoor activity.  A horseshoe pit, an open field that can be used for softball, and fishing, available to licensed anglers, add recreational opportunities to an event.

The property has been used for corporate picnics, family reunions, a variety of scouting events, and even several weddings.  If you are interested in using our facilities to host an event in exchange for a small donation,  please read "Using the Chapter Grounds."
