Support Our Mission!

Strawtown’s flame is kept shining by the appreciation and contributions of our friends and community.  It is our goal to expand our programs to reach more youth, and to offer more sponsored workshops.  Help us reach our goals!  Join us in our endeavors to raise healthy connected children, and support the work of our artists and naturalists who are working together to create a vibrant place to live! 

This event is also an opportunity to recognize some of our key supporters who have made a difference for Strawtown, and for our environment through their heart-felt dedication to children, community, and the natural world.
