Annual Campaign


When The Wilderness Center comes to mind, many people probably think of a place to go with children.  Certainly, countless numbers of young people have spent hours learning, exploring and playing on our trails, in our Interpretive Building and at our new Nature Playscape.  But our region’s children aren’t the only ones who can be at home in nature here.  The Wilderness Center offers unique opportunities for people of all ages to connect with the natural world.  The Wilderness Center is here for you and we’re counting on you to ensure that we stay here for generations to come.

You are a vital part of The Wilderness Center community and we need your support.  Please make a tax-deductible donation to our 2016-2017 Annual Campaign.  Donations may be made using the form below, or may be sent to:

We are here providing education for families and programs for children and adults.  Your support sustains quality programs that teach about plants, insects, animals, habitats, weather, seasons and other aspects of our natural world.  It is also a place where people can learn about themselves and connect with others through clubs, lectures and special workshops.

We are here protecting natural resources.  Your donation helps fund the important conservation work that preserves nearly 5,000 acres of land img_6356and 13 miles of streams throughout six counties here in northeastern Ohio – protecting habitats where native plants and wild animals flourish.

We are here promoting good health.  Your contribution makes The Wilderness Center available for exercise, whether that’s a brisk hike, a trail run or a casual stroll among the trees.  It also allows our Interpretive Building, Astronomy Education Building and 10 miles of trails to remain open and free to the public – providing engaging, nature-focused activities.

We are here helping landowners manage their woodlands and wetlands.  Your donation is working to empower others to participate meaningfully in the process of making environmentally sound conservation and management decisions for themselves.

We are even here to assist individuals with their end-of-life needs.  Our nature preserve cemetery, Foxfield Preserve, offers a beautiful final place of rest in harmony with nature.  Your support truly addresses the need for nature from cradle to grave throughout all walks of life!

Please be here for us today and give generously!  Every gift, no matter the size, will make a big difference and will benefit future generations of visitors to The Wilderness Center for many years to come.

Thank you very much for your support!



Jeff Dafler
Board President, The Wilderness Center
