Wreath Fundraiser - Thank You!

Our 2014 Wreath Fundraiser has been a huge success - thank you for supporting our efforts to raise money to fund underserved children in nature camps and classes!  We raised $14,042 from wreath sales and classes... We exceeded our goal of $13,000! YAY!

All of our profits will be used to subsidize our Lil Nature Kids preschool nature program to make it more accessible to families, as well as fund 95% scholarships for under-served children to attend Summer Nature Day Camp in 2015. We could not have done this project without the help of some very important people!

Martin Nicholson (Curator at Hoyt Arboretum), City Nature East, City Nature West, PP&R's Maintenance Supervisors, Horticulture Services, Colleen Keyes, Jacki Hunter, Derrick Roberson, Customer Service Center employees and Mark Ross.

Hoyt Arboretum Friends, The Oregonian, The Sellwood Bee, The PDX Observer, The East Portland News, Teufel's Holly Farm, Porterhowse Nursery and Rainy Mountain Farms located in Sandy, OR. 

Most of all, THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! to the 2014 Wreath Volunteers - a total of 71 adults, teens and children who spent 365 hours making all 426 wreaths!
