“Teaching children about the natural world
should be seen as one of the most important events in their lives.”
– Thomas Berry, The Dream of the Earth
We all benefit when children develop a strong connection with nature, especially in their own community. Climbing trees, collecting warm eggs, jumping in muddy puddles and helping care for our 86 animals are just some of the immersive lessons that 10,000 children and adults experience each year at Connolly Ranch Education Center.
Will you help us continue to share these lessons at Connolly Ranch?
This year, we need your help more than ever. Each year we provide $210,000 in scholarships, free programs and low-cost field trips, but as grant priorities have changed in recent years we are faced with hard decisions on how to sustain free and low-cost community programs.
But wait…General contributions are critical to contributing to a non-profit’s sustainability, however we know many of our supporters love to donate to specific causes or join an event that directly supports the ranch.
