NEXT in Nature

NEXT in Nature is an energized group of young adults focusing on engaging the NEXT generation in nature through events and community outreach efforts. NEXT includes people who enjoy spending time in nature and want to make a difference in the lives of children in our region. We hold monthly meetings, host adult social "fun"-raising events, and work with the Board of Trustees to support the Nature Center's mission.

NEXT in Nature’s Mission: To inspire passion for nature in the NEXT generation.

Join us at one of our upcoming meetings to learn more about NEXT in Nature. To receive updates on meeting times and locations please email the group organizer.

Testimonials from NEXT members

“I’ve been coming here since I was in high school. It's my "home away from home" since we moved back here from CO and represents a place to escape the chaos of life.”

“The Nature Center gives me focus. Everybody has different experiences in life and we all have periods of up and down. If times are hard, CNC recharges you. If times are great, CNC enlightens you. The Nature Center develops the most powerful memories - from times when I carried my old dog on one of our last trips past the cabin to the first steps on the trail with my family - they are passages into who I am.”
