Generations of donors, members and volunteers have worked together to build Friends by investing in and nurturing the wildlife reserve and our programs and activities related to this treasure. Contributions from generous individuals, corporations and foundations have brought programs to life, created stimulating programs for children and have helped to ensure long-term stability for Friends.
Today, more than ever, we need your support to help build the Great Lakes Wetlands Centre. The Centre will provide a legacy that will sustain Friends and ensure that Second Marsh is protected for generations to come.
Friends gratefully accept contributions in support of our activities. Whether you choose, to sponsor an exhibit in the Great Lakes Wetlands Centre, give an outright gift, donate services-in-kind, or choose to become a member, we are pleased to welcome you to the Friends family.
