As a nature-oriented nonprofit, we understand what it’s like to work on tight budgets, which is why we’ve set our rates to be fair and affordable. We want you to be focused on the beauty of your special event — not how much it costs! At the same time, we depend on special event revenue to provide essential funding for our nonprofit’s operations. Your rental fees help us pursue our mission and support the community!

Weddings, parties, memorials and business events all have different needs. Our variety of spaces allows you to personalize your event experience. We can give you a specific quote or create a custom package to suit your event needs, just let us know.
