A Center for Environmental Studies

Tayamentasachta (TAY-a-men-ta-sak-ta), a Center for Environmental Studies hosts environmental education programs for students of the Greencastle-Antrim School District.  The purpose of our environmental education programs is to educate our students in ecology and environmental science, encourage the natural development of scientific inquiry, and foster awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the environment and Earth's systems as well as our cultural heritage so our students can become responsible stewards of planet Earth.    

Tayamentasachta is a 45-acre environmental center with amenities that include a 19th century farmhouse and barn, natural spring, spring house, log cabin, longhouse, pavilion, and orchard.   Additionally, walking trails, woodlots, fields, and gardens make it possible for our students to actively learn interdisciplinary concepts during a unique and unforgettable learning experience.  Learn more about Tayamentasachta including our rich history, education programs, and special events by exploring our site. 

Classes are held daily at Tayamentasachta, therefore, the park is closed to visitors during school days from 7:00 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Thank you for your understanding.
