On this Giving Tuesday, please consider supporting Fontenelle Forest.
Your gift helps to provide an environment
where everyone can enjoy the wild quiet of nature.
As a non-profit organization, Fontenelle Forest heavily relies on the support of the community to realize our mission of providing a serene environment where anyone can come and enjoy the quiet wild of nature. Donations from individuals – people just like you – are vital to our success.
Your support allows Fontenelle Forest to continue to be an active steward of 2100 acres of land and 24 miles of trails, protecting and restoring it for decades to come. Through conservation and education we inspire current and future generations to care for the natural world.
Donations like yours ensure that we are able to provide engaging hands-on field trips for schools and home school groups throughout the Omaha area and beyond. We also take our programs on the road, visiting schools and senior centers throughout the greater Omaha area. Through our education programs, events and camps, we’ve engaged over 15,000 students and 30,000 individuals in 2019 alone! Your gift can play a direct role in helping us continue to reach thousands of children and adults in our community each year.
Our Raptor Recovery program sees more than 600 injured and orphaned raptors each year from every corner of Nebraska and parts of western Iowa. With your donation we can save and rehabilitate more raptors. Through raptor education and live raptor programs we reach over 20,000 people each year, inspiring both children and adults to better understand and want to help conserve these exceptional birds of prey.
Here’s what your Giving Tuesday gift can do:
- $35 helps us restore one yard of trail.
- $100 feeds a bird of prey for one year.
- $150 pays for medical care for an injured raptor.
- $310 allows one child to attend summer camp.
With your gift today, you are ensuring we can continue to foster a love of nature in children and adults through education and conservation, helping to inspire future generations to be good stewards of the land and the animals that live within it.
