Consider giving to the Nature Center

Please consider donating to the Greenburgh Nature Center. Your donation provides the necessary tools and equipment for us to maintain our grounds and tranquil open spaces for you and your family to enjoy; and helps us achieve our mission by providing a variety of educational programs, caring for the 100+ animals who call the Nature Center their home, and maintaining the diverse ecosystems that cover the 33-acres of our beautiful nature preserve.

Studies show that on average, school-age children spend less than 4 hours per month outside enjoying nature and exploring its many wonders. At the Greenburgh Nature Center we strive to provide a backdrop with seasonal experiences that encourage outside play, exploration, and imagination. We take pride in our hands-on educational programs that engage curiosity about our natural environment and educate students about native plants, trees, wildlife, and biodiversity.

The Greenburgh Nature Center is the place to fall in love with nature, to take an interest in the environment, and to help children to grow as a generation to be the next environmental stewards who protect and nurture it. Our programs are taught by our highly trained Naturalist Educators with advanced degrees in the areas of environmental science, animal husbandry, ecology, forestry, wildlife habitats, and conservation. Students learn how to lead a more sustainable lifestyle and we empower them with the skills they need to make positive everyday changes that can help our environment for many years to come. Please help us to reach more children!

The Greenburgh Nature Center has been a valued community resource on environmental education for close to 50 years, and it’s because of generous donors like you who care about the future of our children and our environment! Make supporting the Greenburgh Nature Center a part of your yearly philanthropic giving or consider the gift of a membership and share your love of nature with a friend or family member.
