The Benefactor Bench level of membership is a fitting tribute of remembrance to a loved ones' memory; to celebrate a milestone anniversary, or to honor a friend, family member or community leader who has a passion for the environment.
The Benefactor Level is $2500. This attractive bench is made to last. Donors may create wording meaningful to them for a dedication plaque that will be affixed to the bench.
Donors may suggest locations for the bench placement. All effort will be made to locate the bench in a suitable area.
