In 2017 a large donation from Don and Leatrice Mathison allowed Beaver Creek Reserve to make substantial improvements to our campus. Thanks to this generous donation Beaver Creek Reserve’s electricity needs are now all produced by solar energy, we have installed a brand new parking lot and paved walkway to the north campus, and we upgraded our website and software programs to increase staff efficiency.
With the parking lot expansion came the opportunity to re-landscape the front of the Wise Nature Center. To honor their life and legacy, the Don and Leatrice Mathison Memorial Walkway was added directly in front of the Nature Center. This walkway connects the Nature Center with the North Campus and is now ADA compliant. In our previous campaigns, over 100 families have honored loved ones with 131 bricks along the Memorial Walkway.
This is your opportunity to purchase a brick in memory or honor of a loved one, or to recognize special occasions like a birthday, anniversary, or other milestone.
If you are interested in participating, simply complete the enclosed form and return by March 31, 2023. Any proceeds from the purchase of the engraved stones will be used to improve and maintain surrounding gardens, purchase additional picnic tables, and to fund areas that help us achieve our mission of connecting people with nature.
If you have any questions about ordering a brick or need any assistance, feel free to call us at 715-877-2212 or email our Database Coordinator, Julie Felske, at email@example.com.
