Have you ever heard the saying, “you can’t see the forest for the trees”?

Bernheim believes you can see the forest for the trees.  Bernheim’s new strategic plan, with Four Big Ideas, is designed to transport you towards a deep connection with nature. This big picture, or “forest”, will successfully guide and grow Bernheim’s mission and vision over the next ten years.

With all of this in mind, Bernheim invites you to begin, or continue, your own personal journey – a journey to see the forest and the trees – towards becoming deeply connected with nature.  Your journey begins with a visit; hiking, picnicking with family and friends. Next, you begin to discover nature through interpretive programming, guided hikes, regular visits. Soon you understand the value Bernheim brings to your life and others in our community – and we hope you will choose to support Bernheim’s mission of connecting people with nature by engaging with nature at Bernheim on a personal level. How? You can choose from the many available options to support Bernheim financially; as a volunteer, you open worlds of possibility to Bernheim through caring for the arboretum and connecting with visitors at events. And, sharing your Bernheim story with people you meet in your daily life inspires others to connect with nature, too.  Learn more at the pages below. See the trees.  See – and grow – the forest.
