It’s literal. It’s metaphorical. It’s musical.
And even when we can’t gather…it’s irreplaceable.

Although we cannot gather as planned on June 5th, the real magic of Stardust—a delightful summer evening with your nearest and dearest—is still there for the taking, thanks to the natural world. Birds will serenade. Fireflies will twinkle. A Strawberry Moon will rise. And Mercury will dazzle. Pour yourself a glass of something special, don a signature Natural Lands nature tattoo, and celebrate from home the impact of your Stardust support.

Without night-of event benefits, 100% of your contribution will advance Natural Lands priorities for saving open space, caring for nature, and connecting people to the outdoors.

Our mission is critical. Our commitment is unwavering. Nature is essential to all. Together, in the spirit of Stardust, we can have an impact and make a difference.


For seven consecutive years, sold-out crowds of conservation-loving friends have found themselves wrapped in beautiful Stardust evenings at stunning venues—ChesLen Preserve, Erdenheim Farm, Stroud Preserve, Binky Lee Preserve (overlooking what is now Bryn Coed Preserve), and Stoneleigh: a natural garden. Sadly, we could not gather as planned this June. But we can still celebrate time in nature (the real magic of Stardust!), made possible throughout the year care of Natural Lands’ 43 nature preserves and one public garden.

Anchored by the support that we receive from generous sponsors like you, annual Stardust proceeds advance Natural Lands’ highest priorities for saving open space, caring for nature, and connecting people to the outdoors. As we invite you to save the date for next year’s event (Friday, June 4, 2021 at Stoneleigh: a natural garden), we hope you will consider maintaining this year’s investment in our mission to provide land for life and nature for all as a sponsor.
