Do you shop at Amazon.com? Have you heard of the Amazon Smiles program? This is an easy sign up and diverts a small  portion of what you spend at Amazon to Woodlawn Nature Council INC. See the details here.

Help with our wish list or with a service project! Woodlawn Nature Center is largely volunteer based. A few needs currently include a new floor (it’s 50 years old!), climate control for the collection, a pile of rocks, a large light table, garden area, educational materials, an entryway to our play area, and a flight lab. Additionally, we need help to keep our great educational programs going. Can you help? Contact us here by email.

Consider making a lasting gift by contributing to our fund at Elkhart County Community Foundation. Write Woodlawn Nature Center in the organization field or choose it from the list under Community Development. This helps build an endowment for Woodlawn Nature Center, with only drawing off or reinvesting a small percentage of the profits each year. As an added bonus, ECCF matches your contribution at 25%, adding lasting power to your contribution.


Thank you for helping Woodlawn Nature Center fulfill its mission to connect our community with nature!
