The Davis Patio

PAVING THE WAY:  SUSAN AND JACK DAVIS

Fenner Conservancy supporters Susan and Jack Davis are major philanthropists in the Greater Lansing area. Thanks to their leadership gift in support of this donor patio, they have paved the way for others to support our mission of connecting people to nature in the heart of Lansing through conservation, education, and stewardship.

THE SETTING

In the shade of our beautiful visitor center, overlooking the pond and with a view of the butterfly garden, sits a campfire ring. The fires in this ring have cooked hundreds of gallons of apple butter, set the mood for families to enjoy some warmth after winter night hikes, and for decades, have helped youth learn how to build campfires during Nature Day Camp. This ring, full of memories, will be the centerpiece of our donor patio.

THE NEED

Each brick that is purchased provides funding that is directly invested in a solid future for Fenner. 100% of the proceeds from each brick purchased will be used to deliver high-quality environmental education programs, care for our park through habitat improvement, and maintain our four miles of trails.

OUR LEGACY, OR THAT OF A LOVED ONE

Purchasing one or more bricks is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to support Fenner. Whether you’d like to show your support by placing your name on a brick, or you’d like to memorialize the memories created with loved ones, your bricks will forever be a part of Fenner Nature Center.
