Welcome to the Gillette Nature Association
Your Donations and Sponsorships Make It All Possible
The Gillette Nature Association has received some generation donations the past few months that are paving the way for some significant upgrades to the Gillette Visitor Center in 2014.
We gratefully acknowledge the following gifts:
- The John J. Helstrom Memorial Fund of the Community Foundation for Muskegon County responded to our Community Needs Wish List request for $2500 to purchase the artwork for the Dune Den mural. This project is complete and is beautiful.
- The Joseph “Joe” Nowak Fund of the Community Foundation for Muskegon County made a $500 gift of support.
- Pratt and Whitney Canada contributed $400 for the purchase of new aquariums for the Center’s Dune Den.
- The Michigan Farm and Garden Foundation continued their long tradition of supporting our educational efforts at the Center with a $200 grant.
All of these community partners and more will be celebrated at our Feb. 8 sponsor event, Making Tracks in 2014. Don’t miss the fun that evening…mark your calendars!
