2020: See How We Connected People With Nature This Year!

People sought out natural places this year, as never before! We saw so many visitors hiking the trails, visiting our gardens and using our picnic areas. While 2020 wasn’t the year that had planned, we adapted and sought new ways to connect with people…and connect them with nature.

We invite you to view our video to see all the ways people connected with nature in 2020, and all the new work we did to help them enjoy it more at Nature At The Confluence!

While we don’t know what 2021 will bring, we do know for sure that people will keep seeking the outdoors, and we’ll keep seeking ways to connect with them.
