Environmental Stewardship

“In terms of Ecology, of using the land in a natural way,

he was ahead of his time;  Ultra ahead.”

– Pete Dye, on Radrick benefactor Frederick C. Matthaei

From the inception of Radrick Farms, consideration for the environment has been one of our main priorities.  Multiple programs and activities have been implemented and developed culminating in various Environmental Stewardship certifications.

Here are some of our efforts and recognitions:

Season Pass holders have also helped by making a conscious effort in maintaining environmental quality by reducing waste and practically eliminating litter from the property.  Radrick Farms could not be “The Hidden Gem” that it is without the help from others in the community as well.

For example, the Dundee Chapter of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) has helped to mount 30 Bluebird nest boxes.  The FFA will continue to assess and evaluate the placement of these boxes and their habitants.  Follow the link to our Community Outreach page for more details on these efforts.

We have also partnered with Matthaei Botanical Gardens regarding research and the care of naturalized areas, wildlife, and forests.

With your help and support, these efforts will continue to be rewarding for all stakeholders.
