We have been fortunate to be able to provide a dynamic Nature Center that is open to everyone and has a wide range of programming.This wouldn't be possible without tremendous support from our many partners in the community. Financial support is needed now more than ever to keep the tradition going. The Hugo A. and Thelma Aspegren Charitable Trust and the Lower Platte South NRD have helped fund school hikes. Lincoln Cares along with many other partners helped fund the Heritage School and Hudson Cabin projects, the most recent land purchase, and the green addition to the Prairie Building.

The Friends of the Nature Center have supported all of these things as well as equipment and art purchases and a scholarship program. The Doole Family Trust has provided an endowment to maintain the Louise Evans Doole Herb Garden. There have been many other generous donors, and we are asking you to consider becoming one of them. With the help of the Lincoln Parks Foundation we have developed a fund-raising program. You can help by adopting an acre,donating to a scholarship fund, buying a brick to Heritage School or a Stepping Stone to the Elk Bridge with an engraved stone. Your participation in a sponsoring a program or garden will continue to make the Nature Center the amazing place it is. More information can be found at Lincoln Parks Foundation.

25% of undesignated contributions go to the endowment fund. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
