CLIMBERS RUN NATURE CENTER beckons you to explore. It is a special preserve with upland and lowland plant communities, meadows, fields, maturing and young woodlands, wetlands, a wild trout stream, and pond—a showcase of diverse wildlife habitats not often found in one location, let alone just 113 acres.
Climbers Run is also a place where students, volunteers, families, researchers, birders, hikers, and more can receive hands on learning, focused instruction, and immersive interpretation of our natural world. Partnerships begun in 2014 with area schools, scout troops, and education partners can continue to grow as ongoing site and facility improvements provide an accessible and quality space to learn about nature. Volunteer training and engagement, lecture series and workshops are poised to be expanded to cultivate a thriving movement of citizen scientists and land stewards.
Our goal is to raise $3 million to support Climbers Run Nature Center, both for habitat and capital improvements, but also for an endowment to ensure ongoing education programming and volunteer training. Your donation will be matched by the continued and dedicated pursuit of grants to ensure long term sustainability.
