A Little Help from Our Friends
Each and every day we get by with a little help from our friends, to paraphrase Billy Shear’s song lyrics the Beatles made famous in 1967.
Thanks to generous gifts of time, talent and treasure from supporters like you, for nearly 40 years the Elachee team has been able to fulfill the worthy mission of promoting environmental understanding through education and conservation.
Educating for today so we may preserve for tomorrow is a weighty challenge. We are pleased to report an impressive response to Elachee’s current strategic planning initiative – input we received this past spring and summer from public surveys and key stakeholder focus groups. Elachee’s Board of Trustees now has a prioritized plan for guiding the organization the next three to five years.
“In a society where technology and busy lifestyles rob people of the simple pleasures of going outside, Elachee provides a welcoming place for children and adults to experience and connect with the natural world.” This survey response confirms Elachee’s valuable role in the region. We invite you to view the Elachee 2017 Annual Highlights report that shares the Nature Center’s critical impact by the numbers.
Elachee is a place to discover, learn and play. Here we teach the science behind the environment and what individuals of every age can do to ensure a healthy planet for all living things – now and into the future. We also actively preserve and maintain the unrivaled beauty and natural treasures within the 1,440-acre Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve, one of Georgia’s largest protected greenspaces.
We sincerely appreciate your dedication to Elachee’s mission and your willingness to support what you value – children, nature education and the environment. Your gift will directly impact Elachee’s ability to continue doing important work for the thousands of school children, families and nature lovers who benefit each year.
Every gift matters!
