Sponsorship Opportunities for 2016 



Sponsorship includes signage at the event, on flyers, advertisement on the website, promotion on our Facebook page (which has over 7,000 "likes"), and on our growing Twitter account.



  • We are in need of sponsors & donations for our annual On-Line Raffle.  Please contact the Center for details and opportunities.


  • Please consider sponsoring one of our open houses. These are free events and give the public the opportunity to tour the center, talk with staff, see & meet the education animal ambassadors and learn more about local wildlife. Open houses are a great opportunity to photograph wildlife and explore the Blue Creek Conservation Area. Activities for the kids and snacks for all are always provided. 


  • Sponsor our annual Wildlife Festival in June. The Wildlife Festival is a free, family friendly event hosted by Nature's Nursery at the Toledo Botanical Garden. Over 1,000 people from across the region attended the event last year. There are activities for children, food & drink, live animals to see & learn about, and displays from a variety of organizations that work with or for the benefit of wildlife and their habitats. A great opportunity for any area business.


  • The 4th annual Animal Masquerade,  to be held on November 3 at the Wildwood Metropark is our signature event. This event is the highlight of the year with live entertainment, costume contest, great food, cash bar, a fabulous silent auction and raffle. We are seeking event sponsors and silent auction items. 




Contact the Executive Director, Steve Kiessling, at skiessling@natures-nursery.org if you are interested in any of these sponsorship opportunities or more.
