Stony Kill Foundation
The Stony Kill Foundation, Inc. was chartered in 1977 and is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. On January 1, 2011, the Foundation took over the responsibility of programming and caring for the livestock at the Stony Kill Farm Environmental Education Center, which is owned by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. As a result of this new partnership, additional staff were hired. New members to the Foundation are always welcomed, as well as volunteers.
The Foundation operates the Barn, Barn Classroom, Greenhouse, Lower Shop, Community Garden Plots, and Verplanck Memorial Perennial Garden. We own and care for the livestock: cows, sheep, pigs, chickens and a turkey. School and scout groups can be accommodated. Check our calendar for a full list of offerings that include events, programs, workshops, camps, etc. The grounds are open from sunup to sundown, seven days a week. There are over 8 miles of hiking trails.
Financial support of any kind is always welcomed, as our efforts are keeping Stony Kill Farm open to the public.
