BECOME A SUSTAINABILITY CLUB MEMBER

PLEASE JOIN THE SUSTAINABILITY CLUB TODAY!

By giving a monthly gift of $10 or more, you are educating visitors to better steward our earth.  You will join a growing number of people who have made a monthly commitment to help put sunshine in our solar panels, wind in our turbines, and water through our microhydro turbine, as we grow into a leading environmental education center dedicated to helping people make better energy and sustainability choices.

By joining the Sustainability Club you will ensure Beaver Ponds can bring important and fun beaver ecology, high altitude gardening, composting, and other programs to individuals and school groups.  Your monthly commitment will allow Beaver Ponds to conduct important research science, continue our forest management work, and partner with colleges to help educate college students in the field of sustainability, and so much more.

Monthly giving makes it easy for you to support our programs and it makes it easy for Beaver Ponds to budget for our programs – it is symbiotic and an increasingly important relationship for success as we grow.  Your monthly donation of $10 or more will go a long way in helping us all become better stewards of the earth.

Nature & Beautiful Ideas

Listening to the radio a week ago I heard a physicist having a conversation about beauty and nature. He asked the question. Does nature inspire beautiful ideas? A beautiful idea can come in many forms: a math equation, a poem, a sculpture, an educational approach, crafts, a song, a design, literature, social solutions, environmental solutions, a different perspective on reality, the possibilities are limitless. Different ideas may come from sitting by a stream or strolling through the woods than in other situations. Nature does inspire beautiful ideas.
