Tayamentasachta (TAY-a-men-ta-sak-ta), which was established in 1966, is a Center for Environmental Studies which hosts environmental education programs for students of the Greencastle-Antrim School District. The purpose of the 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 17th 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. Maintenance and repairs to the buildings are on-going and require funds. Donations are accepted on our make a gift page.
