Friends of the Preserve

The Kreher Preserve & Nature Center was endowed to Auburn University as an outreach program of the College of Forestry, Wildlife and Environment.  Though this relationship has allowed the Kreher Preserve & Nature Center 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 Kreher Preserve & Nature Center 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 Kreher Preserve & Nature Center with their annual contributions.
