Riverbend’s Purpose and How Your Contribution Helps

We believe every child needs nature.

Shiverfest contributions directly support environmental education programs for children. Riverbend has 35,000 program visits on and off site annually, including 23,500 school student visits. Of these, 51% serve children from under-resourced communities.

Your sponsorship gives children the joy of being in nature and provides hands-on, outdoor learning. You are also investing in a 30-acre preserve open to the public seven days a week.

Thank you for your support of this important work!
