Events for June 29, 2019
On the last Saturday of the month work with great people in the great big beautiful out-of-doors. Come join the crew! Volunteers have an opportunity to work alongside MFFC staff in such activities as wood stacking, trail maintenance, tending to the berry patches. Call to find out sign up and see what's planned for Volunteer Saturday. Merck Forest and Farmland Center is a non-profit educational organization located in the Taconic Mountains of southwestern Vermont. The Center’s mission is to inspire curiosity, love and responsibility for our natural and working lands. How to find us: Merck Forest and Farmland Center is located between Rupert and Dorset, at the top of the very large hill on Route 315 (Rupert Mountain Road). Please do not rely solely on your GPS: once you reach the top of the big hill on 315, turn into Merck Forest's Driveway. If you start going downhill, you've missed us!
Saturday Matinees at 2:00 pm and Saturday Evenings at 7:30 pm Written by Tom Jones. Music by Harvey Schmidt. Directed by Susanna Gellert. The longest-running musical in history, The Fantasticks invites the audience to use their imagination to create a world of moonlight, magic, and memory.

Reality collides with romance as the young couple falls in love, grows apart, and finds their way back to each other after the September rains.
