Give a Gift to Nature



A gift made to Charlotte’s Quest Nature Center in memory of a loved one or in honor of a special occasion is a lasting way to celebrate a life while supporting local environmental education and conservation.

All Gifts to Nature made throughout the year are recognized by Manchester Parks Foundation by planting a single tree within Pine Valley Park, as a tribute to your loved one.

You are welcome to attend both the planting and a special recognition ceremony, when the names of individuals memorialized or honored will be acknowledged, followed by a moment of silence. This tree will be a living monument to your loved one.
Invitations for the planting and ceremony will be sent to you using the address you’ve provided.

Manchester Parks Foundation, Charlotte’s Quest Nature Center’s parent organization has been overseeing operations since 1995. We offer monthly programming, field trips, special events and a unique gem in the heart of the small town of Manchester in Maryland.
