  • “Any real strides in the conservation of our natural resources must come from the general public, and can be brought about only through increasing awareness of our surroundings.”

    ~ Dr. Mary E. Wharton, Floracliff Founder
Dr. Mary Wharton built a legacy at Floracliff when she diligently purchased and protected the land, established it as a non-profit nature sanctuary, and left an endowment to fund its care and management into the future.

Today, the endowment covers almost half of our annual operating expenses. Generous financial support from our donors plays a significant role in covering the rest and is critical to the success of Floracliff’s land stewardship and nature-based educational programs.

With your help, we can continue the legacy Dr. Mary Wharton started.
