Thanks to your generous support, we’ve hit our 2020 year-end goals and can start 2021 strong and stable in the face of continued uncertainty.
It has been a challenging year for so many, but the Eno has seen record visitation and our Association, strong participation from neighbors like you. With the final push from our generous Eno community, we are pleased to share that individuals, foundations, and corporate partners donated a combined $2.9 million to the Eno River Association in 2020, including the historic establishment of the Roberta & Herman Brown Land Preservation Fund.
We have you, our loyal friends, to thank for ensuring we are responding to the needs of our Eno community throughout 2021 as well. Because of you, we are looking forward to a bright New Year. Together we can accomplish so much, including:
- **Continuing to support and expand conserved land at Eno River State Park, West Point on the Eno, and all of the parks & natural areas within the Eno River basin
- **Keep our 220-acre Confluence Natural Area open seven days per week to support visitors seeking the restorative beauty of nature along nearly three miles of Eno riverfront
- **Grow our acclaimed education programs to provide support to students and teachers for whom hands-on, experiential learning outdoors brings health and wellness benefits in addition growth in STEM skills and environmental literacy
- **Develop a new strategic plan to keep our focus sharp, assure that the protection and education projects we undertake are the right ones, and ensure that our organization welcomes all people who live and play in our diverse region
- Respond quickly when key properties become available for conservation and preservation
Thank you for being a part of our Eno family, and for your support in 2020. We look forward to another year of protecting the natural, historical, and cultural resources of the Eno River basin — together!
