Nurturing the Environment

Environment

Minute Man Air Field is the steward of over 200 acres of open space. We are home to many unique species of plants and wildlife. We have enlisted the aid of local farmers to work the land, providing jobs and fresh produce while helping maintain safe, open approaches to the runways. At Minute Man Air Field, aviation works hand in hand with local environmental interests.
