A Latesummer Night’s Green

The biggest fundraiser of the year for Pierce Cedar Creek Institute is in person this year! It has always been a celebration of all the work the Institute does to inspire appreciation and stewardship of our environment.

There will be Institute related raffle prizes and delicious food and drink and wonderful conversation.

Raffle prizes include spending a day with a scientist, a behind-the-scenes tour of the property on a mule, a native plants planting party, a tour of the Jones House, and a surprise box filled with goodies.

The event will take place on August 14 from 6-8 p.m. for this celebration of the Institute.
