Happy New Year from the Gates-Rogers Foundation board members. We wanted to take a minute to thank those of you who follow the South Fork Nature Center’s newsletter. We know that many of you donate your time, talents and financial support to help keep SFNC up and running. We value your contributions and know that without your support our job as board members would be much harder, if not impossible.

We think that 2017 is going to be an exciting year at SFNC. We especially value one of our partners, the US Fish And Wildlife Service, who have helped in our glade restoration and butterfly habitat restoration project. 2017 promises to bring new partnerships with new projects that will enhance the learning at SFNC. We as a board are constantly working to make SFNC a facility the community will be proud of. We’ve enjoyed working with many different regional school districts this past year. We want to nurture our established relationships and work hard to expand to additional school districts. The educators that bring their students to SFNC appreciate the importance of a field-based learning experience.

We at SFNC value our visitors! We would love to hear from you. Have a question, comment or an idea for a program at SFNC? Do you want to be a docent or a grounds volunteer? Maybe you want to schedule a field trip for your class or organization. You can contact us through our email or call our office phone number listed on our webpage. A member of the GRF board would be happy to return your call or email. Most of all we hope you’ll visit SFNC and experience the natural beauty in your own backyard!
