Your membership does more than provide access to the Nature Center

Member support ensures that we can maintain our facilities, care for our sanctuary, continue to provide quality environmental programs, rehabilitate injured animals and return them safely to the wild, and preserve our valuable natural resources.

Honor & Memorial Tributes

Honor a friend or family member through a gift to DPNC in their name. We will send acknowledgement of your tribute to the family and your tax-deductible contribution supports Nature Center programs and mission.

You can also dedicate a physical tribute such as a picnic table or stone bench, or replenish a planting area for tributes of $500 or greater.  Contact [email protected] for opportunities.

Give to the Craig Floyd Giving Garden

The Craig Floyd Giving Garden at Coogan Farm has devoted volunteers and supporters. The Garden impacts health and well-being through the nutritious food we grow and donate, and also through physical exertion and the emotional benefits of working the land.

Connect with the Craig Floyd Giving Garden on a deeper level by making an annual or recurring contribution that will help fund its operation.

Community Partners

Our Community Partners help the Nature Center fulfill its mission: To inspire an understanding of the natural world and ourselves as part of it – past, present and future.  Benefits packages may be customized to suit any company’s outreach needs. We hope you’ll support our Partners as they help the Nature Center to thrive.

Wise Owls

Planned gifts to the Nature Center are transformational. Our Wise Owls play a key role in the continuing improvement of the Nature Center, keeping environmental education strong and vital for future generations.

Adopt an Animal

As a federally licensed wildlife rehabilitation and education facility, the Nature Center regularly takes in, rehabilitates and cares for native creatures. Our goal is to release healthy animals back into areas of good habitat. Some are unreleasable due to the nature of their injuries. The animals that remain in our care become Animal Ambassadors and a part of our education programs to help further our mission of nurturing an appreciation of the environment.
