Support This Project

Project Description

Discovery Park’s 50th Anniversary will include activities throughout 2022 and beyond that focus on two things vital to the park’s future: celebration activities and lasting legacy projects in education, history and stewardship.

Funding for celebration activities will provide shuttles in the park, as well as walks, talks and stewardship events leading up to the official ceremony and activities on October 1, 2022. Your donation will pay for or help match grants for these activities.

Funding for legacy projects will support a Future 50 endowment and programming to serve children. The Discovery Ranger educational pilot project is based on the federal Junior Ranger program and includes field trips and an online component. Legacy project funding also supports a full-length documentary about the history, unique Master Plan protections and future stewardship of the park to keep it an “…an open space of quiet and tranquility…”. The documentary is scheduled to premiere to the public on October 28, 2023.
