During the bitter cold spell in December, all three floors of our environmental education center were flooded. Our loss is great, but we are grateful to our community and dedicated to our mission.
In addition to floors and ceilings on all levels of the building, we lost many furnishings, equipment and educational supplies. This flood was a devastating loss for our organization, yet we are grateful for our community that has already come together in our time of need. Among the most selfless were the volunteers who worked late into the night on Christmas Eve with buckets and mops in hand.
Repairs are underway and our buildings will likely remain closed for months, but nature is still open. Our grounds, where biodiversity thrives and people flourish, will remain open daily dawn to dusk.
