Fall on the Beech-Maple Trail

Annual Fund (Fall Appeal)

Throughout the year, nature’s color palette provides refreshment and inspiration. As summer melts into fall here in southwest Michigan, we observe shades of green transforming into a vibrant array of yellow, orange, brown, purple, and red.  French philosopher Albert Camus described this time of year: “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” KNC’s ever-changing forest canopies, fens, prairies, and savannas are new each day, even as trees become bare with winter’s approach.

So often we hear our Members and guests describe KNC as their “home in nature.”  We hope you share this sentiment and visit often — drawing refreshment and inspiration from our diverse, colorful habitats and their inhabitants.  There are boundless opportunities for KNC’s Members and guests to observe nature’s color palette while spending time at their “home in nature.” 

Your gift to KNC’s Fall Appeal makes it possible.  Each year, contributions like yours provide $100,000+ in operating support. This allows us to continue and improve our education and conservation work.  It also enables us to reach the increasingly diverse audiences found among southwest Michigan’s communities.  Your consideration of KNC’s Fall Appeal is appreciated. Every gift is critical to our mission of inspiring our diverse community “to care for the environment by providing experiences that lead them to understand their connection to the natural world.”
