Why

The need for nature has never been greater. During these challenging times, we can all enjoy the physical and mental health benefits while maintaining physical distancing.

Wehr's fall calendar is normally packed with programs, events, and fundraisers that are essential for the financial well-being of the Nature Center. Your support now is critical.

What

Three week fundraising challenge that has something for everyone. You decide the level of participation that best suits you.

Join supporters near and far in our first ever Virtual Walk. We'll provide a menu of fun challenges and nature activities to accompany your experience at Wehr or any nearby nature.

Who

Nature-lovers of all ages and abilities are welcome! This is a great way to come together (virtually, of course) to show support for Wehr Nature Center.
