Ney Nature Center Tribute Giving

The Nature Center accepts monetary donations in any amount to honor or memorialize an individual. Both the recipient and donor will be acknowledged. We will notify your special person or that person’s family with a card or letter informing them of your tribute gift. Donations of $500 or more will be recognized on a plaque located within the Ney Nature Center’s Education Building.

Commemorative Pollinator Garden: Donations to honor or memorialize an individual given to the Commemorative Pollinator Garden will be used to purchase native plants specific to butterflies, bees, and other insects that rely on such plants to survive, build and maintain the pollinator garden and provide continued support to the programming used to educate about pollinators.
