AWE Gala Raised $350,000 to Expand the Experiences in Nature, for All
The October 5, 2019 AWE Gala was whimsical + wildly fun, and a success, thanks to everyone who participated!
Through the support of our gala sponsors, attendees, auction donors + bidders + volunteers, you helped Nature Collective raise $350,000 to expand the experiences we offer in nature, for all.

In your own words, Love Letters to Nature were written on postcards at the entry to our festive event. These selections represent the emotions, the experiences, that inspire us to reach even more people to connect, experience, and protect nature now and always:
“You have mended my broken heart, captured my imagination, challenged me beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you, I owe you so very much. I love you.”
“You are my church.”
“Thank you for touching my mind with curiosity and wonder, my heart with joy in your beauty, and my soul with your inspiration and awe. You are such a blessing in my life!”
“With gratitude for trees. You fill my soul.”
“The path through nature is always a great one, I love you!”
“What a wonderful world it is with you as my constant, consistent source of peace.”
In love, we become nature’s greatest steward and advocate.
We thank you for joining us in our journey! It was awesome to celebrate together with longtime and new friends in support of a world where access to nature is now more important than ever.
