Mission & Purposes


To contribute to the enrichment of Pope Farm Conservancy as a community and educational asset. We strive to protect and preserve the balance of the conservancy’s unique natural, agricultural and historical features and volunteer as stewards to promote our passive conservancy.

Our organization was formed for the following purposes:

  • Advance and facilitate educational opportunities and interpretive programming in the Pope Farm Conservancy for students and the general public.
  • Preserve the balance of wildlife habitat, historic, geologic, agricultural, environmental, and scenic features of the Pope Farm Conservancy.
  • Protect natural landscapes and grass trails, wildlife and their habitat, and the general public’s tranquil enjoyment of the Pope Farm Conservancy as a passive conservancy free from commercial activity; motorized vehicles and bicycles; dogs; and organized sports that require athletic fields or open space.
  • Through volunteer activities, support the Town of Middleton in the maintenance, improvement and general enrichment of the Pope Farm Conservancy as an educational and community asset.
