2019 Flights of Fancy

Join us for the most anticipated regional outdoor party of the year. The 19th Annual Flights of Fancy Benefit & Auction is Saturday evening, April 27, 2019 at Elachee Nature Science Center. 

This event is Elachee’s sole fundraising event each year, raising critical funding for the Nature Center’s innovative environmental education and conservation initiatives that benefit children, families and nature lovers and the natural world we all share. The annual Flights of Fancy Benefit and Auction is Elachee Nature Science Center's sole fundraising event each year.

Hosted by the Elachee Board of Trustees, a stellar volunteer steering committee puts on this casual, fun party offering guests a farm-to-table meal and quality adult beverages. They spend most of a year securing an incredible selection of whimsical, eclectic and one-of-a-kind nature-inspired treasures and adventures for the live and silent auctions (see below).
