I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in. ~ John Muir, 1913

Nature Partner Program

A special way for businesses, agencies, organizations, and clubs
to help us provide nature enjoyment and education opportunities for many years to come!

We have come a long way since officially opening in October 2004 and are delighted that the Nature Center has become a special place for so many families and individuals in the surrounding communities.

Each year we welcome over 20,000 visitors participating in programs, site tours, seasonal celebrations, and special events. Visitors also enjoy over five miles of hiking trails and our many unique site features.

Program fees and grants fund only a portion of our operation. Thus, we rely on donations from our friends in the community for a significant portion of our budget. Your generosity will help us continue to offer quality programs, a warm and friendly facility, and beautiful grounds to explore!

As a non-profit organization, all donations to the Sugar Grove Foundation are tax-deductible as allowed by law. The Sugar Grove Nature Center Staff, Volunteers, and Board of Directors appreciate your support.
