In 2017, the Harris Nature Center (HNC) will celebrate its 20th Anniversary. As part of the 175th Anniversary Celebration, the Harris Nature Center Foundation will host a Turtle Toast Gala to highlight the nature center’s history, celebrate its success and raise funds for the continuation of the Nature Exploration Area.

Since opening its doors in 1997, the HNC has steadily increased its visitorship to almost 20,000 each year. People come from the entire Greater Lansing area to walk the refreshing trails, play in the Nature Exploration Area and observe the many live animal exhibits. Each year the center presents approximately 450 programs, engaging people of all ages in nature experiences. 200 of these are school programs that allow over 4,400 students annually to enhance their academics with nature discoveries.

In 2010, the Foundation began raising funds for projects. In 2012, they started raising funds for the Nature Exploration Area. Currently the area includes a Climbable Turtle Sculpture, Log Jam, Michigan Fossil Dig, Sticks and Stones, Gathering Circle and Beaver Lodge. Foundation supporters also provided funds for the River Overlook and the School Bus Scholarship Project which allows 50 classes annually to participate in nature field trips that may have not been affordable otherwise. Future projects include finishing the Nature Exploration Area with 2 Tree Houses and a Sky Walk to connect them.

Gala Tickets: Tickets are $20 in advance – $25 at the door, non-refundable and are the responsibility of the buyer. Includes two wine tickets and commemorative glass.
