Bylane Farm was generously donated by the family of Mary Welsh Parker in 2001. Dating to the early 1700s, Bylane is a treasure that we’re renovating using water- and energy- efficient practices and eco-friendly materials to reduce our ecological footprint while celebrating its history.
Today, Bylane Farm is our center of operations, co-located with our Leon Levy Native Garden and the Hunt-Parker Sanctuary. Bylane hosts our offices, conference and meeting space, and the John L. Bull Library of books, manuscripts, and paintings, as well as housing for our Naturalist-in-Residence, seasonal staff and interns, and visiting researchers and speakers.
