The 4th annual event will be held outdoors at the Nature Center at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 16 at 7:00 PM to a sold-out crowd.
“We are beyond grateful for the excitement surrounding this year’s Fireside, especially after being forced to cancel last year,” said Event Co-Chair Meaghan Hetherington.
“People are ready to gather and express their shared love for this gem we are so lucky to have in our community. Our auction will be full of unique experiences and offerings donated by dozens of local families and businesses.”
Fireside is the Nature Center’s largest yearly fundraiser; all proceeds support their mission of inspiring passion and respect for the natural world through nature education, first-hand experiences with nature, and environmental action and stewardship.
