Věčný Prairie & Trail Project

Help us protect & restore precious natural landscapes!

Věčný means eternal in the Czech language. The Nature Center began acquiring this land in 2008 to permanently protect the woods. An addition in 2019 brought the total to more than 50 acres, and recent staffing additions have enabled the Nature Center to go beyond protection and actively begin restoration of the property in 2021. 

Your gift will make the following improvements possible:

Donations support staff time dedicated to the creation of the trail system and restoration, and the support of volunteers who work on these initiatives.

Thank you so much for your partnership with this project.
