We’re excited to share the Lakeshore Nature Preserve’s 2020 annual report! It was a unexpected year but we made the most of it with your support.

The report features:

  • new student programming in the UW Mutual Aid Garden
  • how staff and programming adapted to the reality of COVID-19
  • the Friends of the Lakeshore Nature Preserve activities – virtual and otherwise
  • a look at the land management and facility maintenance impacts of staff and volunteers
  • a new tool for gathering visitation data – how many people do you think visit the Preserve?
  • recognition of our generous donors
  • a snapshot of our 2020 finances
  • and more…

We hope you read something that inspires you to visit and/or support the Preserve in our mission to support the teaching, research, and outreach mission of the university!
