Letter from the Director

Dear Friends,

This past year, more than any other, we have felt an even deeper appreciation of nature and are so thankful we were able to be the sanctuary many of you needed.

As this year begins to wind down, I want to thank you for your continued support. Whether you participated in our fundraisers, took a class, renewed your membership, volunteered on a Saturday, or simply made a donation online or in one of our outdoor kiosks, those actions allow us to continue to be that sanctuary and to continue our mission - to engage, educate and enrich our visitors so they become better stewards of nature and the environment.

Yesterday was Giving Tuesday, but giving does not have to be limited to that one day. If you haven't already done so, please consider making a year-end donation and help us reach our goal of raising $125,000. We are close, and together I believe we can reach it.

With deepest gratitude,

.
