75th Anniversary & Annual Meeting

Camp Beaver Creek!

4:00-8:00 PM

REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED

Thank you to everyone that came to our 75th Anniversary Celebration & Annual Meeting this year. We are so thankful for our members, volunteers, donors, and friends for their support and for helping us recognize Beaver Creek's growth the past 75 years. From tagging Monarchs, to visiting our animal ambassadors in the Scheels Discovery Room, learning about macroinvertebrates and American Kestrels at our Citizen Science Center open house, to enjoying live music, delicious food, and good company... It was an exciting night!

We encourage those that were unable to attend to visit the Wise Nature Center these next few months to see our historical billboards which include pictures, blueprints, and other archives since 1947. Please also fill out a community story card with your favorite Beaver Creek memory so we can keep track of experiences for future celebrations! We also have our NEW historical booklet for sale at our Nature Store. For $8, you can learn all about Beaver Creek's history, see past recipes submitted by members, and read other community stories to get a brief recap from the past 75 years in 28 pages.
