Check out our Winter Newsletter! It’s a great time to get your 2023 membership, and it makes a great gift too!!
2022 was a GREAT season! Our turtles were a huge hit, and super cute, and the indoor turtle pond is complete with the new mural! We just had a beautiful new outdoor pond installed. Our geology animation is a great addition to our extensive geology display. Visitors continue to enjoy our wildlife window with all of the birds and pollinators that come by, and of course our live beehive! We have some exciting new things coming in 2023. Make sure to start planning your trip to see all the exciting new things at the Nature & Wildlife Center next year!
As always, we strive to be an educational resource for our community near and far. We have developed some resources to help families with fun activities to do while at home as well as educational resources for kids (and adults!), and are working on more. If there are any other ways we can be a helpful resource to the community, please contact us and let us know. If you want to volunteer to help the Nature & Wildlife Center, please reach out as we are always looking for help within the community. We sincerely appreciate any and all support you can provide, whether it’s donations, volunteering, or even just liking and sharing our social media pages and posts! Thank you to our amazing community, we appreciate all of you more than we can say!
We work hard to keep our expenses to a minimum, but as always, we rely on donations to help support our educational programs and operating costs. We are also still seeking donations to help with the new displays. You can help by sponsoring a display (contact us at email@example.com for more details), purchasing an item for the Nature & Wildlife Center off our Amazon Wish List (don’t forget to shop through AmazonSmile and make the LEINWC your charity to give back with every purchase!), or sponsoring a yearly expense. For other ways to help, click here. If you would like to donate online, you can do so through PayPal using a PayPal account or credit card.
