Memorials and Honorariums

Losing a loved one can be very difficult. Memorial and honorarium gifts allow CNC visitors the opportunity to remember a friend or loved one in a public way for years to come. If not directed for a memorial item, all non-designated memorial gifts go into the endowment fund to ensure that children and wildlife have a safe place to connect with the natural world and ensure that CNC is here into perpetuity. Memorial gifts are tax deductible to extent allowable by law.

Named memorials or honorariums
Planting a tree or placing a bird feeder outside in the name of your loved one is a great way for them to be remembered and honored for years to come! Granite benches, bird baths, wood benches, and picnic tables can all be memorials or honorariums for your family and friends. If you are interested in a named memorial or honorarium, please call Jen or Clare at 651-437-4359.
