We invite you to join an exclusive group of leadership donors who are passionate about Dunes Learning Center and outdoor science education. Together, we inspire lasting curiosity and stewardship with nature.
The immersive programs at Dunes Learning Center use nature as a classroom, giving students the opportunity to experience the dunes through hands-on exploration. You can help us reach more than 12,000 students this year to encourage a scientific mindset, ignite wonder and curiosity, and help young people fall in love with nature.
Leadership donors receive special benefits at Dunes Learning Center, including invitations to exclusive donor events along with our many public events. You will get periodic updates from Executive Director Geof Benson, and the chance to enjoy the “camp experience” to see what makes this place so special.
Benefits in the Annual Giving Society are cumulative. Enjoy additional benefits at every level!
