The Freeborn Reserve intends to:

  • in real life, show our native NW plants (we have but 1,500 species)
  • present a “hall of fame” for our Pilchuck Glass School artist neighbors
  • preserve a repository of our ancestors’ values in living history exhibits/way
  • honor those with freeborn minds who sacrificed all for others then and now
  • educate the young who do not know what has been lost,
    because we never saw it as it once was
  • preserve our heritage in real and 3 dimensional forms for coming generations
  • illustrate that we humans can justify killing all: plants, animals, and/or humans singly or in groups, large or small … perhaps until when late the sweet birds sang
