LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
On behalf of the staff and Board of Trustees, we extend our heartfelt thanks for all that you have done throughout the year
to ensure the continued success of the New Canaan Nature Center. Your generosity allows the Nature Center to maintain
and strengthen its mission as an environmental education center.
We invite you to explore the pages of the Annual Report. It highlights a few of the Nature Center’s wonderful achievements.
These include:
•
Continuing to be a successful environmental learning center that maintains 40 acres of outdoor classroom in
the heart of New Canaan.
•
Operating a nationally acclaimed Preschool that is serving as a model for new and existing early childhood
nature-based programs.
•
Being granted a state funded LINKS program that unites 4th graders from New Canaan and surrounding
communities. This is the 22nd year that the Nature Center has been awarded this grant.
•
Extending our Birds of Prey program to more than 4,000 children throughout the New York City boroughs.
•
Exceeding the Annual Appeal target of $85,000. In addition our community events raised nearly $200,000
and our grants totaled over $115,000.
•
Hosting high quality mission-driven family and adult programs and community events that have reached
more than 5,000 people, a number that grows every year.
Our vital programs are made possible thanks to your generous financial support and countless volunteer hours. We are
humbly grateful for the community’s positive response and our beneficial partnership with the Town of New Canaan. These
contributions enable the New Canaan Nature Center to thrive in all of its endeavors and to be well positioned for success in
the coming years.
Your spirit of charitable giving in support of our mission will allow generations of community residents to continue to
experience the joy and wonder of nature.
Gratefully,
Laura Heckman
Executive Director
Linda Andros
President, Board of Trustees
engage
experience
educate
The marvels of nature are all around us.
And we need it. As society becomes
increasingly technology-driven and
indoor-based, it is comforting to know that
the New Canaan Nature Center is a part
of our community and is supported by so
many visionary volunteers and steadfast
donors who understand the importance of
preserving its beautiful 40 acres.
The Nature Center continues to offer a
world of possibilities by sharing with people
the value and importance of the outdoors.
•
engage People participate in nature
every day at the Nature Center, either
through our volunteer programs,
community events, or simply taking a
walk on our trails.
• experience Wet and dry meadows,
woodlands, ponds, marshes, and dense
thickets are enjoyed by all.
•
educate We provide a unique teaching
laboratory and outdoor classroom that
captivates students and visitors of
all ages.
A growing body of science shows that time
spent in nature contributes to intellectual,
social, and emotional development.
Thanks to you we make a difference!
Our team
of professional
environmental
educators teach
over 10,000 children
ages 18 months
to 18 years
every year.
Because of YOU this is Possible…
Nature Center
families make
over 25 gallons of
syrup in our annual
Adopt-A-Tree
Maple Syrup
program.
Miles of
trails are open
for exploration
free of charge to
all of our visitors from
the New Canaan
community
and beyond.
Twenty five
youth volunteers
have restored
the Marsh Pond
to a thriving habitat.
Through our
partnership with the
New York Public Library,
our urban outreach
program has reached
over 4,000 children and
young adults through
100 programs.
“As a family we have benefited immensely from
the Nature Center. Spending early mornings
caring for the chickens was a wonderful way to
teach our daughters about nature and giving
back to our community.”
