Sponsorship

Our sponsors are a unique and important part of what makes Hartley Nature Center so successful in delivering it’s mission to over 24,000 school children, scout groups, and private individuals from over nine area counties each year. What makes this truly remarkable is that, unlike most other nature centers, Hartley is not operated by any state, county, or municipal agencies and therefore relies solely upon program fees, memberships, grants and private donations from people like you. Through their financial support, sponsors enable HNC to serve more low-income schools and families than ever before through scholarship programs.

You can help continue and grow our mission outreach by picking one of the options below today.
