You Can Make a Difference
Our campaign goal of $1.5 million will cover everything from property acquisition to building costs to landscaping. Since the summer of 2014, when we began the quiet phase of our campaign, we have received gifts and pledges totaling $1 million. If we receive our permits in time, we plan to break ground this Fall.
All we need is you! Please support our vision with your gift to the Our Future in Nature capital campaign today!
“From the staff and the earth at this modest nature center, countless Vermonters have discovered birds and butterflies, orchids and otters, relaxation and contemplation. And now, with a vision to connect even more of us to wildlife and wild places, North Branch Nature Center will move from greatness to virtuosity — not only here in Montpelier but far beyond as well.”
Give Your Time and Talent
There are many ways to volunteer for the campaign, both now and during the building phase. If you might like to get involved and have time, a talent, or labor you think might be helpful, please email Capital Campaign Coordinator Emily Seiffert, she’ll be delighted to hear from you!
