Capital Campaign


See the Future


In today's increasingly urbanized world, connecting people to the natural environment is more important than ever.  Expanding Treehaven's capacity to appropriately serve this growing need is critical.  The See the Future campaign aims to broaden Treehaven's reach and impact by providing resources for expanded program facilities and materials.  Your support of the See the Future campaign will assure that high quality environmental education and experiences will touch the lives of more people, from school child to retiree, for years to come.


Program Enhancements


Learning at Treehaven takes place both in and out of the classroom.  Bringing advanced technology and teaching tools into the classrooms will enhance learning for students at all levels. A future laboratory will create the opportunity for long-term ecological research.


In the outdoor classroom, trail expansions and trailside improvements will allow students and the public wider accessibility and the ability to immerse themselves in the natural laboratory that surrounds them.  State of the art field equipment and materials are also essential for Treehaven to maintain educational research and the sustainable forest practices established by the Valliers.


Program Endowment


Lifelong learning can be sparked by a bird class or a field trip in the fourth grade.  Building the endowment will ensure that the Treehaven experience will be available for generations to come.  Gifts to the endowment are permanently invested to provide a continuing source of income.  Scholarships to assist graduate students and honorariums for noted guest lecturers are but two of the opportunities funded through endowment earnings.  Endowment gifts are truly those that keep on giving.
