Helping children learn about, respect, and enjoy nature by providing resources and volunteers to support Fallen Timbers Environmental Center
In order to accomplish our mission, the Friends of Fallen Timbers have these objectives:
• Raise funds to support programs of the environmental center, such as sponsoring events like the annual Fun Run for the Timbers.
• Volunteer our time and talents to help maintain the environmental center
• Encourage others to get involved with the environmental center through service or donations.
