St. Francis Neighborhood Center
St. Francis Neighborhood Center is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3), community based organization in the Reservoir Hill area of Baltimore. Founded in 1963 as an outreach center for two local churches, was incorporated in 1972 as a neighborhood nonprofit corporation, independent of any church affiliation. Due to its unwavering dedication, the Center has become an iconic presence within the Reservoir Hill community.
In the Fall of 2015, educators from the center joined us at our annual curriculum workshop to learn more about raising monarchs in the classroom. These teachers took that knowledge back to the classroom where students in their after school program were able to successfully raise, tag, and release monarchs. Together with the Center we installed a pollinator habitat garden in the Fall of 2016.
