Endowment Fund

Support Nature Programs in Your Community!

The Endowment Fund supports the Nature Centre in perpetuity. Donations to the Endowment Fund are invested to generate a stable source of revenue. These donations provide long-term support of nature-based interpretive programming in Lethbridge.

We accept donations in cash, cheque, credit, or debit at the Nature Centre front desk during regular operating hours. Or you can use the donate button below to make an immediate online donation through the Friends of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre Society.

Program Sponsorship

Support action packed outdoor learning experiences!

Our youth programs inspire learning and discovery. Mentorship and support helps participants make sense of the world around them. Each program centres on four interconnected themes: creativity, conservation, science & technology, and recreation.

Your support of youth programs will have a direct life-long impact on approximately 2,500+ youth (ages 2-15).

Conservation Project Sponsorship

Heal the land and build community!

We organize several projects that support volunteers that care for our river valley. Help us support these volunteers! Your sponsorship helps us coordinate volunteers, provide cleanup supplies, and celebrate our volunteers.

You can help us make a big difference every year! On average:

  • 2,000+ volunteers take part, contributing over 2,600 hours.

  • 400+ bags of garbage removed from coulees and shorelines.

  • 75% of Lethbridge coulees and 10km of shoreline cleaned by volunteers.

Room Naming

Become a part of the Nature Centre!

We are seeking the right organizations that align with our mission, vision, and values to develop a beneficial partnership. In exchange for funding support, we can offer great exposure for your organization.

The Nature Centre is a vibrant community resource that benefits our local environment. Naming one of the Nature Centre’s rooms has many benefits. It is a great way to show alignment with the Nature Centre’s positive community reputation.

The City of Lethbridge acknowledges that we are gathered on the lands of the Blackfoot people of the Canadian Plains and pays respect to the Blackfoot people past, present and future while recognizing and respecting their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship to the land. The City of Lethbridge is also home to the Metis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
