ESC’s Virtual Soirée

Please celebrate our 20th anniversary by supporting future discoveries!

Our annual fundraiser was cancelled due to health concerns with spreading COVID-19. Our goal was to raise $65,000 at the event to continue delivering vital outdoor educational programs to little ones, youth, and families in our community. This is nearly 20% of our annual budget. Months of planning have gone into this event, which was to be a celebration of our 20th anniversary and looked to be our most successful fundraiser to date. This month, donations of $250 or $500 will be matched by a generous pool of donors. While we cannot be together, we hope to still meet our goal with your help!

Help us impact more students and family in fun, virtual ways!



You give because you care.

You care about your environment, your community and your world.


It’s been a long, fun journey and we couldn’t have done it without being in your caring community! We recognize that everyone connects with nature in their own way and that helping others connect further can provide transformations within their outlook, actions and relationships with others. You are part of these shifts. We appreciate how you’ve supported countless intimate connections within our programs for the past 20 years. We hope you help us expand our impact in the community for the next two decades!!!


Thanks to your support, we can continue providing classes, events and activities that help students, adults and families connect further with nature to appreciate and protect it. Whether you call the Pacific Northwest home or feel connected to its unique treasures, you’re strengthening its vitality through a community of caring.


Our newest community member thanks you, too!


A special thanks goes to our volunteers & sponsors for their support!
