We invite you to the Grand Opening Celebration of the new Bubolz Environmental Center and our Earth Day Festival!
The event begins with a Saturday evening Gala, highlighted by keynote speaker Richard Louv. Richard Louv is a journalist and author of nine books, including Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder, The Nature Principle: Reconnecting with Life in a Virtual Age, and most recently Vitamin N: The Essential Guide to a Nature-Rich Life: 500 Ways to Enrich Your Family’s Health & Happiness. His books have been translated into 13 languages and published in 17 countries, and helped launch an international movement to connect children and their families to nature.
In his groundbreaking international bestseller Last Child in the Woods, Richard Louv spotlights the alienation of children from the natural world, coining the term nature-deficit disorder and outlining the benefits of a strong nature connection—from boosting mental acuity and creativity to reducing obesity and depression, from promoting health and wellness to simply having fun. Bubolz Nature Preserve is bringing this concept to the Fox Valley with our soon to be announced Need for Nature campaign.
The weekend continues on Sunday with a Free Family Festival from 10am – 3pm featuring hands-on environmental activities; music and entertainment. Your involvement to promote your products, brands and services will increase your company’s visibility and strengthen its association with environmental sustainability in the community. Your sponsorship and/or hands-on activity will highlight what your company is doing to support community efforts and environmental stewardship. Sponsors receive a wide range of benefits, which can be personalized to meet your needs. Sponsorship Opportunities HERE
