The Lodge at Woodloch takes great pride in our employees, the community, and our natural surroundings. We make every effort to support our team to make a difference in the community and to follow passions that will help them grow as individuals and team members.
Employee Volunteer/Charity Efforts
PENNIES FROM HEAVEN Caleb’s foundation – Nichole Mitschele Granville (daughter of Robin Mitschele from The Lodge at Woodloch’s Restaurant) created this foundation, with the help of her family, after her son passed away. PENNIES FROM HEAVEN financially assists families in need so they do not have to leave their sick child’s bedside.
Miles for Melanoma – Jocelyn Gebhardt (from The Lodge at Woodloch’s Human Resource Department) will run in the St. Luke’s half marathon to raise money for Melanoma Research. She is running in honor or her mother.
Cancer Research Events – Robert Kiesendahl and the Kiesendahl Family founded BK Hope Cures in 1999. Through fundraisers and community functions, BK Hope Cures is able to donate to many Cancer Research Groups, including Susan G. Komen for the Cure, The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center & Lance Armstrong’s LIVESTRONG foundation.
Farm to Table
The Farm-To-Table Garden will provide a selection of the vegetables and herbs that will be used at TREE Restaurant. Garden programs throughout the year, with a focused Garden Week in August, will give guests an opportunity to have a hands-on gardening experience with our Master Gardener and her team. The Lodge hopes to open this area to the local community for workshops, demonstrations and community gatherings.
Our Master Gardner, Alison Peck, is working on creating an all Organic Farm. In addition to not using pesticides, our organic practices include companion planting, promoting beneficial insects, cover cropping, seed saving, rotation planting, composting, and the use of organic materials to build the soil. Alison, with the help of her team, shares these organic practices during the yearlong garden programs.
A Turtle Sanctuary
In the summer of 2013 a member of the Outdoor Adventure team saved 30 turtle eggs from a construction site. The eggs were kept safe, warm, and watered throughout the summer and are finally starting to hatch. We hope that all 30 turtle eggs will hatch by the end of September. At that time they will be released into the sanctuary of the bog to live a life of leisure and protection.
Green Lodging Partnership
We are a proud member of the Delaware Highlands Conservancy Green Lodging Partnership. Guests staying at The Lodge can opt to have a $2 donation added to their bill which will go direction to the Conservancy. The Delaware Highlands Conservancy assures that all the special places, scenic beauty, and outdoor recreational opportunities that bring out to the Upper Delaware River region will be here for you now and every time you visit.
