Friends of the Preserve


The Louise Kreher Forest Ecology Preserve was endowed to the Auburn University as an outreach program of the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences. Though this relationship has allowed the Forest Ecology Preserve to continue its evolution as an important resource within our community for outdoor recreation and environmental education, the Preserve remains heavily dependent on grants and private donations for its operations.

In this spirit, we recognize the individuals, businesses, foundations and corporations who provide this vital support to the Preserve in pursuit of its mission to foster a¬†sense of appreciation and understanding of our natural environment, particularly¬†in our youth. Together we pledge to “Leave No Child Inside.”

Please join us in our appreciation of the donors, members, sponsors and volunteers who have supported the important work of the Forest Ecology Preserve with their annual contributions as of May, 2013.
