Put Us Over the Top!

Will You Be A Part of Putting Us “Over the Top!?”
We appreciate a donation of $100 or any amount that is right for you!

As many of you know, a major goal of the Friends of Wehr and the Wehr Nature Center is to become the most accessible nature space in southeastern Wisconsin.  Inspired by the Accessible Viewing Deck donated by the Todd Wehr Foundation in 2010, we continue to improve access to the Center and its natural areas for all visitors and especially for visitors with limited mobility.

This work has been on going for the last several years, and the fruits of our labor and your support are already evident through the Amphitheater reconstruction, Accessible Boardwalk connections from the Amphitheater to existing boardwalks, new walkways with permeable pavers, and a landscaped front entrance. And now we are on the home stretch of our Accessibility efforts.  These efforts include updated and accessible restrooms, a new front vestibule, owl cage and expanded office space. Construction is targeted to begin in November 2018!

We have received a significant donation from long-time volunteers Ed and Connie Vidmar specifically designated for this project, and because of your generous support through your Friends of Wehr membership, past donations, fund-raising events and the Parks Amenity Match Funding, meeting the overall goal of $370,000 to finish this work is attainable.  In fact, if every Friends of Wehr member would contribute $100, it would put us “Over the Top” of our fundraising goal!  Many of you have already contributed to the “Over the Top” fund, and we thank you!

Will you be a part of these efforts so we can finish the job and make the Wehr Nature Center the most accessible nature center in southeastern Wisconsin? 

Thank you for your continued support of the Wehr Nature Center.  We could not do what we do without you!
