The Ties that Bind Us
One of our members lost her sister—way too young—to brain cancer. The two women were quite close, and often walked our Whaleback Natural Area trail together before cancer struck. “She really loved that trail,” the member told us. “After she died, I went there as often as I could. It made me feel close to my sister, and helped me to process what had happened.”
Thanks to support from people like you, places like Whaleback will exist in perpetuity for future generations to find comfort and serenity. Since our founding over 30 years ago, we have created 26 natural areas—free and open to the public—with over 20 miles of trails. In these places, wildlife thrives and people’s lives are enriched. Families reconnect in nature, making memories as they disconnect from technology and other distractions.
