Join us for Back to Nature!

Please join us for our signature annual fundraiser, Back to Nature, on Saturday, May 11, 2019. This year’s theme, For All Seasons, highlights the wonders of nature and the changing of the seasons throughout the year.

At this event, we will celebrate A Man for All Seasons—Bill Hopple! Bill has served admirably as the organization’s Executive Director for 23 years and will begin his well-deserved retirement a few days after Back to Nature. Cincinnati Nature Center has experienced tremendous growth and financial success under Bill’s leadership, and we want to thank him and wish him well as he moves on to a new season of life.

As always, our Back to Nature event promises to be a fabulous evening with 400 guests under the stars, cocktails, gourmet dinner by Elegant Fare, original nature-themed art, and a spectacular, one-of-kind auction. Part of the proceeds of the event will be used to establish an education fund in honor of Bill Hopple.

Event begins at 6pm
Valet parking available
$175 per person
