Nature Near You Needs You:
Support WPC This Giving Season

Has nature inspired you or lifted your spirits this past year? Perhaps you watched birds or planted native plants in your backyard, took hikes to enjoy the fall leaves or fished on a local stream. No matter how you enjoy it, nature has been there for you.

You also know that nature is threatened in many ways, and taking action in our own neighborhood, town or region can really make a difference. Conservancy members, volunteers and staff are already making a difference for future generations of people and wildlife by planting trees and gardens, protecting and studying wildlife, plants, habitats and streams, caring for Fallingwater, conserving land and maintaining trails for all to use.

Let’s continue working together and make a real difference locally. We need your help to protect nearby nature and preserve Fallingwater so our children and their grandchildren can enjoy the same natural and cultural resources we cherish today. Together, we can help nature thrive in our corner of the natural world.

Please consider making a one-time or monthly donation, or renew your membership. A gift membership is a great gift for a loved one who appreciates nature.

Please donate on Giving Tuesday (November 30) or by December 31 to protect the places that have given you so much. Nature needs you more than ever.

Volunteer to Plant Trees or Steward Gardens
We plant trees in communities to provide shade and wildlife habitat, and help manage stormwater. Volunteers can help us plant trees in November. We are also seeking volunteer stewards for several of our community flower gardens, which need care all year long.

Gallagher Run Restored in Ridgway
