commemorative bench program
Natural Lands’ commemorative bench program offers a unique opportunity to honor someone special, commemorate an occasion, or establish a memorial for a loved one at one of our publicly-accessible properties in eastern Pennsylvania or southern New Jersey:
- Bear Creek Preserve
- ChesLen Preserve
- Crow’s Nest Preserve
- Glades Wildlife Refuge
- Gwynedd Preserve
- Hildacy Preserve
- Harold N. Peek Preserve
- Stoneleigh: a natural garden
Benches are constructed of natural woods to retain the wild aesthetic of the preserve setting. Natural Lands will install a natural wood bench, including customized plaque, at the agreed upon location for a donation of $2,500. Your donation covers the construction and installation, as well as the continued maintenance of the bench for its natural lifetime, on average 10 years.
To discuss a commemorative bench, contact Gary Nelson, director of individual giving.
