Annual Fund

The experiences the Science Center provides by getting people Nearer to Nature have never been more important for everyone’s mental and physical wellbeing.

Our live animal exhibit trail continues to delight visitors from across the region with inspiring educational information about our natural world, in a safe outdoor environment. We will continue taking steps to ensure the safety of our visitors, volunteers, animals, and staff.

The Science Center survived 2020, thanks to you and donors like you, along with much needed federal relief. But the long-term impact is hard to know.

We have a lot to be thankful for. We have remained healthy, we have proven we can operate safely under pandemic restrictions, and we will have spectacular new exhibits to welcome you back.

Your gift will allow us to bring many more people Nearer to Nature in 2021.
