This year has been challenging, but also exciting and extremely rewarding. We have been able to open the Center, go back into classrooms and get out on the trails!
Despite the challenges, we have still been able to reach thousands of students, teachers, families, and community members through school programs, teacher support, workshops, tours, and volunteer events.
Some of our most exciting accomplishments include completing the outdoor classroom and ADA accessible watchable wildlife platform at Willow Bend, resuming in-person adult workshops, and partnering with the City of Flagstaff to develop their Indigenous Youth STEAM Academy programs. Our staff and volunteers have continued sharing their rich and diverse experience to engage meaningfully with the community through locally-focused and nature-based programs. We are committed to improving and developing new programs and making them accessible to everyone.
On behalf of the Willow Bend Board of Directors and staff, we express gratitude and much hope for the year to come.
