Sponsorship & Naming Opportunities

The Kreher Preserve & Nature Center attracts over 35,000 visitors annually, educates nearly 6,000 school children each year, and provides free and low-cost community programs and activities for thousands of people in the region.  Proceeds from ticket sales and event sponsorships support conservation, community outreach, and environmental education through the Nature Center’s mission:  to promote a sense of stewardship towards nature through quality environmental education, recreation, and outreach programs.
