Spring Wildflower Gala
2020 Spring Wildflower Gala
We hope this message finds you safe, healthy and planting your own garden!
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, we were unable to host the 2020 Spring Wildflower Gala.
Our future 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. Now, more than ever, the Preserve is needed as a sanctuary for nature and people.
Please check back with us; as we are able, we will provide updates on our future events.
Growing and Learning Together
This year's gala was to be themed "Growing and Learning Together," to help 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. 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.
As a result of the current pandemic, the 2020 Spring Wildflower Gala was canceled.
Thank you for your interest and support!
