For over 91 years, Bernheim has worked hard to provide natural beauty, clean air and water, and a place of respite for you, the community, and beyond. We protect 16,137 acres of land, including a pristine forest that provides habitat for thousands of different animal and plant species and filters the air you breathe and the water you drink. Unfortunately, the climate crisis impacts forests like Bernheim, threatening ecosystems and biodiversity that are critical to the future welling being of people and our planet. Through Bernheim’s mission, connecting people with nature, we are taking actions to protect our planet by advancing sustainable forestry, demonstrating environmentally friendly practices, and inspiring the next generation of environmental stewards.
But we can’t do it alone – protecting our planet starts with YOU! From now through December 31, 2020, we have a goal to raise $50,000 for Bernheim’s end of the year campaign, For the Planet, For You. Your contribution, no matter the size, will help strengthen Bernheim’s efforts in conservation, sustainability, nature-based education, and more.
Bernheim is 100% member and donor supported. Support Bernheim TODAY and help make a difference for our forest, planet, and future generations.
NEW this year – join us for six Zoom discussions about what Bernheim’s expert staff is doing for the planet and for you.
