Getting Involved

How Can I Help?

​Every year, we give thousands of children and adults eye-opening, memory-making outdoor experiences. These experiences are made possible through the generosity of people like you. No matter the size of gift, your time, your expertise, or simply just telling your friends about us, YOU are making it possible for us to carry out our mission and continue to thrive as a community asset. 

At Columbia Springs, there are several ways you can help us foster a greater awareness of the natural world and inspire stewardship.

Supporting Us

Give the Gift of…

Wonder

By donating to Columbia Springs, your gift allows us to spark the inquisitive minds of children that may not otherwise have access to nature or nature programs. Children who acquire an appreciation for the natural world are more likely to become STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) leaders of our community. You can spark imagination by donating here.

Trust

Leaving a legacy is important to all of us. By becoming a Great Blue Heron Circle member, you are entrusting Columbia Springs to steward your assets when no longer needed so that your legacy will continue to serve children and families for generations to come. There are many ways that you can become a member of the Great Blue Heron Circle, through wills, trusts, retirement plans and other programs that can be mutually beneficial for you and Columbia Springs. You can find out more information by visiting our legacy giving page here.
