From the Director of Development
Hello! I am the new Director of development here at The Wilderness Center. I joined the team in May and have been busy ever since! Our goal in the Development Team Is to allow TWC to continue fulfilling its mission to educate and engage our community on the importance of conservation for the betterment of us all. For over 60 years, TWC has focused on serving our community through environmental education and conserving important habitats and preserves. With the loyal and unwavering support from you – our donors, we have been successful with this goal! The dedicated support has been astonishing since day one and incredibly appreciated. Without our donors, we could not continue to fulfill our mission.
Major construction is finished at our Nature Playscape! Just another example of your donations being put into action to create important aspects of TWC. We are still taking donations to support the update and increase of accessibility of our Nature Playscape. Go to WildenressCenter.org/donate. Keep your eyes peeled for an exciting invitation to our grand opening!
We jut hosted our annual Enchanted Forest event on Oct 7th and 8th. Visitors met costumed volunteers such as Mouse, Spider, Tree Frog, and Possum as they were escorted along our pumpkin-lit trails. The educational focus of the evening was on the interconnectedness and importance of nocturnal species. It was a huge success, we hosted over 1,000 visitors over the weekend. A huge THANK YOU to our many volunteers!! Without their help, it wouldn’t have been nearly as successful.
Keep an eye out on your email and our social media for additional information about our fun upcoming events. These fun activities occur regularly, and you don’t want to miss out!
We are nearing the beginning of our Annual Campaign, and we ask that you, our community of supporters keep our work in mind. We need support in continuing our mission to connect our community with nature, educate people of all ages, conserve natural resources, and practice environmental stewardship. We, as always, appreciate your help in completing this mission.
All of these activities would not be possible without support from our community of members and donors. We greatly thank you for your generosity and support of our mission. Come and visit us soon!
