WHY OUR WORK MATTERS
We have learned in this period of shutdown that our work is more important than ever! To offset the isolation people are feeling, we have encouraged folks to go outside, explore one of our nature preserves, and get some much-needed fresh air. And they have responded in a big way, thanking us for stewarding these natural places.

Research shows that time in nature is extremely important for our mental health. It not only has a calming effect on the brain, reducing anxiety and depression, but it also increases creativity and work productivity. Outdoor time also boosts immune systems and lowers blood pressure. Medical practitioners are ordering a good dose of nature, for many good reasons… and so are we!

This event raises valuable dollars to support our important work! We encourage you to invest in our mission and participate virtually this year!

GO EXPLORE
We encourage you to visit one of our preserves near you during the virtual celebration and tag us in the photo on social media!

PARTNERSHIP
In lieu of a sit-down meal we will be donating the normal catering bill from the event to the Mountaineer Food Bank! Their mission is to feed West Virginia’s hungry through a network of member feeding programs and engage our state in the fight to end hunger. Serving 48 counties / 460 food pantries and soup kitchens. (in 2019 alone, Mountaineer Food Bank distributed 20.7 million pounds of food to people in need!) Learn more about the Mountaineer Food Bank at www.MountaineerFoodBank.org.
