Annual Fund (Spring & Fall Appeal)
Thank you for giving to the Kalamazoo Nature Center!
Our natural world is in a constant state of transition. In southwest Michigan, it’s easy to appreciate this as fall colors emerge and temperatures cool. Transitions take place in our personal lives as well, creating a sense of seasonality that can be subtle or pronounced. The stories featured here are examples of personal transitions in which KNC played a pivotal role. Our impact on these individuals – and so many others – is due, in large part, to your support. Organizations experience transition as well, KNC included. This fall the Board of Trustees announced that our current President & CEO, Bill Rose, will retire in 2018. With this comes a search for Bill’s successor and much planning for the transition ahead. Thanks to the leadership of Dr. Lew Batts, Jr. (KNC founder) and Dr. Bill Rose, we have led our field and served our local community as a treasured resource for almost 60 years.
The financial support of our generous community has allowed KNC to have a profound impact on the individuals featured here and countless others. During the season of transition ahead, we hope you will support KNC as your means permit. Your tax-deductible donation toward our $100,000 fall appeal goal provides critical operating support – so that everyone in our community can experience the passion, thrill, and excitement that comes with meaningful connections to the natural world.
