Dedicate a Bench

Your bench dedication is for a ten (10) year term and includes a solid metal plaque that measures 2” x 7”. It features a long-lasting bench with a design recreated from benches that were used throughout Lincoln Park beginning in the late-1800s; includes an arched armrest in the center.

North Pond Nature Sanctuary

$12,000 for A Ten Year Term

As a part of our restoration project, we have replaced the wooden benches around the North Pond Nature Sanctuary. These brand new benches add a historic charm to the area and offer fantastic views. Bench dedications help us to fund the North Pond project and assist with our ongoing maintenance of the site.

Dedicate a Tree or Wildflowers

Give the gift of a beautiful tree, native wildflowers, or other native plants planted in the name of your loved one at the Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool or North Pond Nature Sanctuary. There are a variety of dedication levels and plants available.

Your gift recipient will receive a special card with your personalized message.
