How YOU Can Help

A portion of our revenue comes from membership and education fees which we keep affordable to accommodate all folks including those with limited incomes. Donations and fundraisers are the only other sources of revenue. That is why we need your help. If you use our trails, visit our center, value nature education for kids, enjoy our classes or just appreciate the value of having an urban forest in the middle of the city, please consider donating this year.

Many Thanks!

Kathy Morris
