Hartley Nature Center

A nonprofit organization

Hartley Nature Center  

Time spent in nature fosters crucial connections. Hartley Nature Center's mission is centered around helping people make lasting connections with nature and with one another. Through seasonal camps, field trips, preschool, school outreach and other community program offerings, Hartley Nature Center helps thousands of people annually make lasting connections with nature.

Your donation will advance our mission of inspiring lifelong connections with nature through education, play and exploration.

Your support benefits our entire community by:

  • Increasing environmental and scientific literacy, especially in children
  • Supporting hands-on education for children, adults, and seniors to increase the level of environmental awareness, appreciation, and understanding
  • Preserving and protecting 660 acre Hartley Park so it remains a community asset for generations to come
  • Breaking down financial barriers to participation in our programs

Hartley Nature Center DOES NOT receive any regular public funds through taxes. We are a donor-supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is dependent on individual sources of funding, including program fees, memberships, foundation grants, and donations from individuals and businesses who believe in the importance of our mission.
