For Wilderness Sake! @ Online
Nov 21 @ 7:00 pm – Nov 29 @ 7:00 pm

Although we will miss seeing you in person at our annual fall fundraiser, we invite everyone to show your support of The Wilderness Center through a virtual silent auction and benefit – For Wilderness Sake!

This year more than ever, your support is critically important to The Wilderness Center’s mission of education, conservation and community. We are relying on YOU to help us cross the funding gap created by COVID-19. The funds we raise at the benefit auction will allow us to continue adapting to our changing environment in order to meet the needs of our community; continue developing outstanding online programming for people throughout all walks of life; continue restoring and protecting woodlands, wetlands, grasslands and even our dark skies for all to enjoy; and continue bringing people together through their love of nature.

Learn more about For Wilderness Sake, and visit our online auction to bid on unique items and experiences!

Hot Topics: The Big Picture @ Online
Dec 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

If you’ve been with us from the start, you may have notices that we are moving outward in the cosmos.  In this last talk, we will tell the story of how we have come to our current model of the universe, its origin and future.  The past 30 years have seen cosmology progress from a mostly theoretical science to one with precision measurements possible to validate theories.  We’ll talk about this and some of the interesting current problems.
