2016 was a year of introspection as we planned for the Nature Center’s future. We completed our Dunwoody Park Master Plan and adopted a Strategic Plan that will guide us through the year 2020. These plans are broader in scope than any initiative we have ever undertaken. Throughout the planning process, we were driven by a vision to build an exceptional nature center that promotes environmental literacy and serves as a nature based cultural enclave for community activity. Our planned growth, of which you and your family are so much a part, will be driven by the following core values which reflect the founding and spirit of the Nature Center:
Our vision for the future of the organization focuses on increasing our collective good by growing our programs and improving our grounds while we support our mission of inspiring the love of nature and cultivating environmental understanding and stewardship. We have forward thinking aspirations of a new era of sustainability that, with your support, will guarantee that we all have a communal place to gather, learn important lessons, and be inspired by a green preserve whose lush grounds are a place of respite and an enclave of cultural activity.
Please consider supporting the Nature Center during Georgia Gives Day as we set the tone for a remarkable period of transformation that will enable the Nature Center to become an even greater community asset for all of us.
