Our Story

The idea of the Nature Center arose after Sally had been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and given “4 months, maybe 6” to live. With the prayers of many friends and family members, good medical care, and a strong spirit, she survived for two and a half years. We had saved for travel during retirement, but by the time she entered hospice care, she was  no longer able to travel. She agreed that the money saved for her travel during retirement should be used as seed money to building a nature center in the park she loved.
