CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
OUR COMMITMENT TO NATURE IS STILL GOING STRONG
50 years ago, Quarry Hill Nature Center took root when one teacher – thinking outside the walls of the traditional classroom – brought a community together to support science education in the immersive environment of a city park right at the edge of town.
In 2023, with great excitement and gratitude, we celebrate five decades of inspiring generations and bringing the community together in nature. Let us continue the legacy of Quarry Hill Nature Center for future generations as the place where nature takes root.
To celebrate this milestone year we are excited to bring the community together in three special ways.
- New members-only events for core supporters who fuel our growth and make Quarry Hill thrive.
- A 50th Anniversary Community Celebration on May 20 where we will gather to celebrate and cultivate the health of our park and classroom through a large-scale restorative planting.
- And finally a big party! Our 50th Gala on September 16. This unique and natural experience will bring together friends for dinner, music, reflection, celebration and an auction in support of growing QHNC in the next 50 years.
