Friends of Rye Nature Center (FRNC) imagines a future in which knowledge of and respect for the natural world is a part of everyone’s daily life. Your philanthropic investment in our mission makes this a reality for

our community.

 

From senior citizens to the disabled to young children and their families, each year FRNC focuses on increasing the number of people receiving nature and science education programs.

 

Through the Nature Access Fund, FRNC provides over 4,000 hours of free science, gardening, and nature programs to people with little or no access to environmental education each year.
