Merlin Nature Preserve
Prior to establishing our public-facing, in-town office in Reeder’s Alley, our programing and general logistics took place on Merlin Nature Preserve — located outside of town, off-grid, near Marysville/Canyon Creek. And when we say “outside of town” (or out there)….here’s what we mean.
This is where Merlin CCC was hatched. It’s also where our founder and director, Marisa Diaz-Waian, lives & stewards the land. The preserve was established by her late father, Lee Waian, in the early 1990’s (in collaboration with Bob & Hopi Stevens) and is under a conservation easement with The Nature Conservancy.
While this is still our headquarters, today, most planning, logistics, and org operations take place in our Reeder’s Alley office…though much philosophizing is still done here….and, of course, we still offer several activities throughout the year, like our philosophy walks, on the preserve.
Why an in-town location? Because we’re a community philosophy organization…so having a public-facing base camp office IN the community — where everyone can easily access us — is important.
