commemorative gifts

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.
