Friends of Ledge View Nature Center, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization of volunteers dedicated to the study, appreciation, and protection of the natural environment through support of Ledge View Nature Center in Chilton, Wisconsin.
Ledge View is fortunate to have the support of a nonprofit volunteers’ group, the Friends of Ledge View Nature Center (FLVNC). The FLVNC contribute funding for an internship position for the park and help cover the costs of developing and maintaining exhibits and park gardens.
This community group is able to support Ledge View through 3 major fundraising events every year; Maple Syrup Sunday (late March), Ledge View 5K Caveman Adventure Run (early June), Halloween Candlelight Cave Tours (October). Volunteers also participate in projects around the park, sharing their experience and love of the natural world to help educate the visitors of today, as well as the children of tomorrow.
This unique partnership between Calumet County Parks and the Friends of Ledge View Nature Center provides an engaging and educational facility for families and school children who attend daily on field trips.
