We can never have too much help with fundraising, clean up, maintenance, and planning and operating events. Make an annual financial contribution. Donate in-kind gifts or offer your services.

Become a member of the Manchester Parks Foundation and have the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors. Help to develop Manchester's nature center!

You choose - it's all up to you.

Charlotte's Quest Nature Center is a Manchester Town, Manchester Elementary School, and community owned facility teaching environmental awareness, appreciation, and the management of our land and natural resources through field trips, programs, and activities. All funding comes from donations, grants and membership dues.Your contribution provides an outdoor learning area, Interpretive Building, hands-on learning materials, and an environmental educator for Charlotte's Quest Nature Center. A place that is close enough for travel for special needs children, an instructor with more advanced environmental knowledge providing learning activities for the teachers and students from Manchester Elementary School and other area schools and at least one program or activity per month for the general public.

May we count on your support?

Charlotte's Quest Nature Center puts your money back into our programming and into the enhancement of our facility, serving you better. Without the kind support of our donors, it would be impossible to fund the education that we provide through our monthly classes, field trips and special activities.


People who have time on their hands and would like to share some of their talents and skills are encouraged to Volunteer.
