Gordon Natural Area

The Robert B. Gordon Natural Area for Environmental Studies not only supports a great range of life including plant, fungal, avian and vertebrate, but also serves as a "natural laboratory" for various environmental related courses. The Gordon area is an integral aspect of both the environment and education in Chester County. We must strive to maintain this ecological sanctuary so that its many attributes are not lost to the pressures of development. This site provides information on the history, lands, mission, recent events, education and preservation issues surrounding the Gordon area.
