JOIN THE BEAVER COLONY
DO YOU CARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT?
DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF A FRIEND OF BEAVER PONDS?
PLEASE BECOME AN INAUGURAL MEMBER OF THE BEAVER COLONY!
Members of this special giving society believe in the power of stewarding our earth by committing to a gift of $1,000 or more in a year to support the Beaver Ponds mission. That breaks down to donations of only $83 or more a month.
In addition to the wonderful feeling you’ll have in your heart from supporting our unique environmental education center, you’ll enjoy an annual Beaver Colony celebration with other core supporters at an intimate behind-the-scenes get together and tour, as well as special recognition in our annual report.
You are welcome to make monthly payments.
You know how important it is for individuals of all ages to have the tools and knowledge necessary to become better stewards of the earth. With your help Beaver Ponds will be able to continue providing children, community groups, college students, scientists, senior citizens, and many more partners the opportunity to learn about sustainability on our 70-acre field classroom located at 10,200 feet along Sacramento Creek in Park County, Colorado.
