Spring Wildflower Gala
2020 Spring Wildflower Gala Postponed To September
As we all take precautions to slow the spread of the coronavirus, it has become necessary to postpone the 2020 Spring Wildflower Gala. We will all miss this wonderful celebration of the arrival of spring, but are hopeful that we will generate similar enthusiasm for our Fall Féte planned for Saturday, September 26th! The meadow will be in bloom, and we will all be ready to enjoy an outdoor event, so please put the date on your calendar and look here for details and updates during the summer months.
Our goal remains the same: to raise funds for educational programming and provide experiences in nature for children and families. Education is at the heart of the Preserve’s mission. And now, more than ever, the Preserve is needed as a sanctuary for nature and people.
As we wait to be able to safely re-open, visit our website to look for information, updates and virtual tours. We are working to develop on-line programs as well as plant sales. You can help these efforts by participating and by upgrading your membership.
We hope this message finds you safe, healthy and planting your own garden!
Growing and Learning Together
This year's gala, themed "Growing and Learning Together," will raise funds to support the Preserve's educational programming for children and families.
Education is, and always will be, at the heart of the Preserve's mission. If we are to truly inspire action and change behavior in pursuit of a healthy and diverse natural world, we must first teach people about the critical web of life issues that face us today. In doing so, we create knowledgeable stakeholders for the future of the planet — a future in which they have a vested interest. We must do more to engage children and their families with meaningful programming that connects them to nature, stimulates their minds, and deepens their understanding of the natural world. We want to educate the next generation of conservationists so that they can better understand the world around them and steward our shared natural heritage long after we have passed.
The Preserve is uniquely positioned to deliver just that kind of learning experience. The diversity of native plants and animals at the Preserve offers an immersive learning experience filled with countless fascinating stories about the interdependence of all life. To bring our stories to life we envision Owl Prowls, Firefly programs, and self-guided scavenger hunts to help share our stories. With your support we will expand the Children's Summer Reading program which combines literacy with environmental awareness. We imagine intergenerational learning opportunities that pair children with parents, grandparents and other caregivers — a scientifically proven method for maximizing discovery and knowledge retention while making cherished memories that will last a lifetime.
Your participation in the 2020 Fall Féte directly supports this important educational initiative.
Tickets will be available later this year.
Thank you for your interest and support!
The Preserve's Fall Féte features both live and silent auctions to support the Preserve and the Fall Féte's theme. This year the theme is Growing and Learning Together. Proceeds from the 2020 auction will support the Preserve's programming for children and families.
