Your contribution helps maintain our 180+ acres of wildlife habitat and 5 miles of trails. Additionally, your support ensures we can continue to provide our nationally-recognized environmental education programs for everyone, always. Your donation is used for 100% charitable purposes to help us meet our mission "to educate people about the natural environment". Your gift signifies that you support your community and are committed to protecting the environment. Thank you for your generosity!

Why your support matters

Each year, Woldumar inspires more than 7,000 area youth through our nationally recognized environmental education programs. Additionally, our over 180-acre campus is open from dawn to dusk for self-guided learning and exploration 365 days per year. As the region's only nonprofit nature center, we rely completely on modest program fees, grants, and charitable donations to achieve our mission: to educate people about the natural environment. With our long history and our work rooted in our mission, you can be assured that your dollars are available to support your own community. Because of your generous support, Zoey can attend her very first camp on a scholarship, Walter can take a walk in nature on the more than 5 miles of trails, and local wildlife have a refuge from ever-encroaching development.

After more than 60 years of educating youth in the Greater Lansing region, the generous support of our community is what keeps us going. Whether you are a new to Woldumar or have been enjoying all we have to offer for years, thank you for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to reach out with your questions or ideas at any time. I can't wait to see you on the trails soon!
