ABOUT THE FRIENDS
The Friends of Maplewood Nature was established in 2007 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. For the benefit of the community, Friends of Maplewood Nature complements tax dollars spent on management of these natural areas and the Nature Center's educational programs. Maplewood Nature Center (MNC) was created in 1979 because citizens recognized the need for green space within a busy community. Since its beginning, MNC has provided environmental programs to educate school children and the public. In 1993, the Center expanded its mission when the citizens of Maplewood overwhelmingly voted for a five-million-dollar referendum to purchase open spaces identified by the Open Space Committee. The Neighborhood Preserve system now has 14 sites.
MISSION: To support and advocate for the preservation, maintenance and environmental programming of the Maplewood Nature Center and Preserves, to support the health of our regional environment, to increase awareness of nature, and to provide a means for the community to connect with nature.
