Your Gift Makes a Difference

Did you know that Conestee Nature Preserve is owned and operated by a small nonprofit organization? 

Our dedicated staff teaches the classes, plants the trees, builds the boardwalks, clears the trails, plans the events, and does everything else required to make this special place enjoyable for you. This work is only possible, though, when it is funded by charitable giving. This means that, as much as you need Conestee Nature Preserve, it needs you too! And there are many tax-deductible ways to support Conestee Nature Preserve

Special Projects

Nature Playscape

In the Playscape, nature will truly be your playground! This expertly designed landscape will provide a safe place to freely play, where kids can turn over rocks, splash in a stream, explore, hide, climb and unlock their creativity!

Free Field Trips for All Students

 We want to remove every impediment we can to getting children outside in nature.


So, field trips in are going to be absolutely free for all public schools! Want to help fund that effort?

Trail & Boardwalk Repair

Enjoy our trails? We are so glad! It takes constant maintenance to keep trails in good repair, largely due to heavy use and intermittent flooding. Help fund our Conservation Team's efforts to keep trails ready to welcome visitors!


Flat Tail Fund

Just like Conestee’s beavers, staff is relentless in maintaining the trails, decks, and boardwalks you enjoy in the Preserve, even when floodwaters rise, trees fall, or other damage occurs. But your help is needed! With your monthly support through Flat Tail Fund, the Trails Team can always be ready “when the dam breaks”!
