A friend of Pratt from way out in California knows how important nature is to our lives. He is so proud of the work that the Pratt Nature Center does he is interested in encouraging you to support Pratt’s Mission as well. He will MATCH every dollar raised from our annual appeal and money raised during this year’s PRATT-a-THON with up to $15,000.00 of his own! That means if you send a gift of $100, $75, $50 or $25, he will double it. If you send a gift of $100, he will transform it into $200 and so-on. And he will double every gift you and our other supporters send — up to $15,000.00.
This is a BIG challenge and we need your help! Every dollar counts! Tell friends! Tell neighbors! Tell Grandma! Tell Grandpa!
You can donate on line OR you can stop by at our annual PRATT-a-THON.
NINE days of events will include: hikes, nature walks, campfires, crafts, kids nature movies, special guests, food, games, wreath making, popcorn and, of course… S’mores!
Can’t stop by? That’s okay… You can donate on line at www.prattcenter.org or there is always the good old fashion method of sending it along through the USPS! We update you on how close we are to our goal via facebook, Instagram, twitter and emails.
This years PRATT-a-THON brings you kid, family and adult events. Pay close attention to the schedule some are drop in, some are drop off and some require registration.
