Fundraising Dinner

SPRING for NATURE – Our normal get-together fundraising dinner for 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 guidelines. But we still need to raise money to support our activities, so we are having a Virtual Fundraising Dinner. The way it works, for every $100 you donate, you have the choice of a $40 gift certificate from the Lake Elmo Inn (now open for dining by reservation for parties of up to four, or families of up to eight), or you may wish to support the nature center with the entire $100.

This year’s speaker was to be Wm Kent Kruger, author of the popular  Cork O’Connor mystery series set in northern Minnesota. He has also found success with his recent stand-alone books Amazing Grace and This Tender Land.  He gives an excellent talk.  We are hoping to reschedule him for next year. While we are cooped up at home, it is a perfect time to buy, download or borrow one or more of Wm Kent Krueger’s books so you can get acquainted with them

Thanks to those who had already purchased tickets, they will be valid for the certificates, or you may request a full refund – call Connie at 651-491-3853.


To pay by check,  mail it to Sally Manzara Interpretive Nature Center,  PO Box 241, Lake Elmo MN 55042 (saves us the credit card processing fee).
