When Friends of Rogers saved Rogers Environmental Education Center from closing, the organization has generated the majority of financial assistance for the Center, allowing this vital community resource to be preserved – and flourish. You are invited to join Team Green with a monthly donation to sustain this amazing adventure! Monthly gifts form a predictable source of income we can count on to provide outstanding educational opportunities that excite, inspire, and motivate people of all ages to enjoy, understand, appreciate, and protect our natural environment.

Here is what a recurring monthly gift can accomplish each year:
$48 each month keeps Rogers Center open for one full day
$27 each month covers four hours of Visitor Center operating expenses
$6 each month provides for one Family Fun program
