From My Riveredge Family To Yours – Thank You!

It’s because of you.

On behalf of my own Riveredge family (seen here getting fishy at Sturgeon Fest!), thank you for making 2017 Riveredge’s biggest year yet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Riveredge family,

The child catching a crayfish…
The woodcock protecting its young…
The grandparent explaining the woodpecker hole…
The young sturgeon swimming free…
The student comparing prairie seeds…
The family laughing in the woods…

These moments were brought to the world this year because of you. Because of you, the world is a bit brighter, a bit healthier, and definitely a bit happier.

That’s how change happens at Riveredge Nature Center. Our family works together to make amazing things happen. Our family is made up of members, donors, schools, students, volunteers, and staff. Only together would we have the perseverance, the power, and the hope to help our world bring nature back into focus.

This past year, over 40,000 people of all ages chose nature through classes, programs, and events hosted by Riveredge – hosted by you. Hundreds of acres, 379 to be exact, of wild Wisconsin were actively preserved – cared for by you. During its 49th year, the Riveredge family grew to its largest ever – and you are part of it.

On behalf of the rest of the family, thank you for being part of our world in 2017.

Here’s to more nature and an even bigger family in 2018.

Keep Smiling & Get Outside!

P.S. Riveredge will celebrate its 50th birthday on January 16, 2018, and the celebration will continue all year long! Please consider a tax-deductible, year-end gift to help bring a record number of people into nature during the 50th year. We can’t do it alone. We can only accomplish change together.
