We'd like to thank everyone who joined us Thursday for our 2017 #NatureBridgeGala. Your commitment and dedication to support our programs is making a real difference in the lives of thousands of children who, because of their experience with NatureBridge, will go on to be leaders and advocates in sustainability, conservation, and environmentalism. Special thanks goes to Betty Reid Soskin and Dylan Lew, our inspirational guest speakers, who represent how the collaboration of people from all backgrounds for one cause can not only be powerful, but unstoppable.

Our #NatureBridgeGala student speaker & 2017 Student of the Year, Dylan Lew, is a senior intern for NatureBridge’s Teen Environmental Education Mentorship (TEEM) program at our Golden Gate campus. Dylan’s journey with NatureBridge began in 2015 when he first became involved with TEEM. Two years later, Dylan spends his time mentoring younger interns on how to be leaders in environmental stewardship. “NatureBridge has taught me about the responsibilities I hold in conserving the environment and in helping build the relationship between my community and nature. It is the idea that I need to advocate for the things that do not speak our language that motivates me to share my passion with others.” Dylan will be recognized at An Evening with NatureBridge on May 11.

We’re proud to announce our 2017 #NatureBridgeGala guest speaker, National Park Service Ranger Betty Reid Soskin. At 95 years of age, Betty is America’s oldest and most beloved active park ranger. Betty moved with her family to the Bay Area in 1927 and following high school, she worked as a file clerk for the segregated Boilermakers Union A-36 at the shipyard during World War II. In the late 1990s, Betty became actively involved in the creation of the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park, which was established in 2000 to provide a place where future generations could remember the contributions that women like Ms. Soskin made to the war effort. Betty will be honored on May 11 at an Evening with NatureBridge.
