ABOUT NISQUALLY REACH NATURE CENTER
For 35 years, the Nisqually Reach Nature Center has offered environmental education to thousands of youth and young adults at Luhr Beach in Olympia, Washington, and in the classroom. The Center provides field trip opportunities, supplemental classroom activities and summer camps, all aimed at sharing the beauty and uniqueness of the Nisqually Estuary and learning the values of conservation, particularly with regard to South Puget Sound.
We have many reasons to be thankful this Thanksgiving as we had one of the best years ever; first overnight summer camp trip to Mt. Rainier, thousands of forage fish eggs found, our new website launched, and the Board of Directors drafted a 5-year strategic plan to help guide us into the future. This strategic plan will be implemented starting 2018. During the Strategic Plan process, we discovered that while we are accomplishing our mission, as an organization we must ensure long-term sustainability of NRNC operations.
With all the work we are doing right now we need your support more than ever. As a supporter, you have been the backbone of our existence over the years. The impact from your contribution is clear- thousands of smiles from kids reached in educational programming and hundreds of citizen stewards monitoring the health of the aquatic reserve.
This year’s ask is a little different. We are setting a target to raise $20,000 to grow our capacity and solidify our organization’s operations. Four ways to help us achieve our goal:
All donations and memberships are tax-deductible.
Thank you for your help to accomplish our goal of $20,000 before the end of the year and the belief in us as an organization!
