Cottonwood Trail Restoration Project

Cottonwood Trail Restoration Project

SPACE has launched an ambitious $100K Cottonwood Trail Boardwalk Restoration Campaign. Help us reach our goal by donating through our GoFundMe Campaign. The boardwalk will close in fall 2019 through early 2020 as restorations begin.

Sustainable Events Initiative

Sustainable Events Initiative

SPACE hosts a multitude of events throughout the year. As an organization focused on land conservation and environmental protection, we’ve launched an initiative to focus on sustainability efforts during our fundraisers and small events. With help from local composting company, Atlas Organics, we’re making composting a priority at our two big fundraisers (Bonnamoo and A Shucking Good Time). Thanks to local artists Frankie Zombie and Maggie MacDonald, you won’t miss the compost cans at these events! Want to help make our events more sustainable? Share a ride and bring your own non-glass tumblers with you. Working together we can make an impact!
