Friends of Ledge View Nature Center
It is critical to Ledge View’s future to diversify its sources of financial support. In 2001, FLVNC established an endowment fund to secure the ongoing and future capital and operational needs of the nature center.
You can shape what Ledge View will become with your support, we can preserve Ledge View for tomorrow’s generations and benefit our entire community for many years to come. Your gift to Ledge View’s Endowment Fund will help make its future brighter.
The Friends of Ledge View Nature Center Endowment is a fund within the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region. The fund, overseen by FLVNC committee, helps meet nature center needs not included in the county-provided budget.
Taking the next critical steps
The Friends of Ledge View Nature Center have identified needs that can only be met through an infusion of community support. Thanks to this support, a part-time volunteer coordinator and intern naturalist have been hired. Ongoing needs include:
Land acquisition/preservation for park expansion
Expansion of the cave system
Nature center equipment for educational programming
Creation and maintenance of exhibits
Enhancement or renewal of existing habitat through expansion, tree planting, and removal of exotic invasive species
Staff enrichment workshops and seminars
Scholarships for students pursuing natural resources careers
