We have done it!

We have met the match! A giant thank you to all who have sent in donations for the construction of the footbridges at the Hesthavn Nature Center. A special Thank You and much appreciation go to Chris and Kate Mathews. Chris and Kate were our anonymous donors! Their offer to put up the matching funds for the first $5,000 of our bridge campaign got the ball rolling for the successful raising of the funds we need for the footbridges. We have reached $13,000 towards our goal of $15,000. We have enough funding for all of the supplies needed for the footbridges, themselves, and we hope to install the bridges, this year, rather than in 2013, as we had anticipated. We are still very much in need of additional funding for the required permits and the cost of the labor for the bridges installation work. If you would like to support our cause, for a successful completion and installation of these footbridges, please send your tax-deductible donations to the ASC, PO Box 148, Corvallis, OR 97339.

The next Hesthavn Habitat Restoration project date is April 28th from 9:00a-12:00p. If you have the time to help, please contact

Hesthavn will be hosting Open Houses, each Saturday from April 7th, through June 30th. We are offering “Special Saturdays”, the first Saturday of each month, beginning in April with our “April Artist Appreciation Reception.” This will be held on April 7th, in honor of Katie Douglas, the painter of the Flying Geese panels that are now a permanent addition to the Hesthavn Nature Center. The reception runs from 11:00a until 3:00p and will be a catered event with a free wine-tasting of the Nuthatch Cellars’ lovely red wines. Hope to see you there!
