  • Greenburgh Nature Center Kicks-Off Anniversary Celebration

    40th-Logo72DPI[1]

    40 Years of Keeping Westchester Wild

    Scarsdale, NY – May 5, 2015 — Greenburgh Nature Center (GNC), the leading environmental education center in Westchester, announced a major milestone this week with the official kick-off of its 40th Anniversary Celebration — “Keeping Westchester Wild.”

    The GNC began work on its 40th Anniversary plans earlier this year when it undertook a community outreach study including an online survey to over 5,000 past and current members. Key findings of the research show:

    · 93% of the survey respondents would recommend the GNC to others as a place to visit;

    · 63% of respondents see education as the GNC’s primary focus; and

    · 78% of visitors have been coming to the GNC for many years, treasuring its easily accessible location and ability to enjoy an intimate connection with open green space, animals, and plant life.

    For its 40thAnniversary Celebration, the Greenburgh Nature Center has slated a number of important projects aimed at Keeping Westchester Wild over the next 40 years and beyond. These projects include:

    • securing funding for the new Native Plant Meadow and Butterfly Pavilion;
    • redeveloping paths and trailways to increase accessibility and the user experience;
    • construction of a new barn for animals and enhanced class room space;
    • building new Green & Sustainable Business Partnerships; and
    • launching a three-year Campaign to restore the historic Manor House and Indoor Animal Exhibits in advance of the building’s 100 year anniversary in 2018.

    “The Greenburgh Nature Center is an extremely special place. While for generations we have been known as a beloved destination for children and families to enjoy animals and the outdoors, increasingly the breadth and depth of our facilities and programs are now being recognized as instrumental in training future leaders of all ages, ensuring a lasting intimate connection with our natural world,
