Celebrate 25 years of the Brown Family Environmental Center, 20 years of the Philander Chase Conservancy, five years of the Kokosing Nature Preserve, and learn more about the Kenyon Farm and the ambitious plans for the next 25 years!

The College offers the Kenyon and Knox County communities a unique array of environmental programs:

  • The Brown Family Environmental Center, celebrating its 25th anniversary and led by Noelle Jordan, is a 500-acre preserve with nine miles of trails that focuses on year-round educational programming and conservation efforts.
  • The Philander Chase Conservancy, celebrating its 20th anniversary and led by Lisa Schott '80, is the only land trust affiliated with a college or university in the country. The Conservancy has conserved almost 6,000 acres within a five-mile radius of Kenyon. 
  • Kokosing Nature Preserve, celebrating its 5th anniversary and led by Amy Henricksen, is the only nature preserve cemetery in the country affiliated with a college or university, offering an option for environmentally-friendly burials on 23 acres of native prairie and woodlands.
  • The Kenyon Farm, led by Ryan Hottle, is a 10-acre student-operated farm.

Join us for a conversation with Noelle, Lisa, Amy and Ryan moderated by Director of Green Initiatives David Heithhaus '99. They'll discuss environmental efforts toward carbon neutrality and making Kenyon a more environmentally-sound campus.
