It’s the annual fund drive for Lincoln Memorial Garden. Just a mention of the Garden evokes happy memories in many and exited anticipation in many more. We are know for our exceptional environmental education programs that offer young and old a place to experience and learn about the natural world.
Our Holiday Market, Pancake Breakfast, Lunch in Bloom, Trail Race and Indian Summer Festival have become annual events for generations of families in Springfield and surrounding communities.
It’s here for walkers, joggers, bird watchers, nature lovers and wanderers of all ages who seek out its beauty and solitude every season.
For more than six decades the Abraham Lincoln Memorial Garden Foundation as overseen this living tribute to President Lincoln. The Garden is the result of a fruitful collaboration between local conservationist and civic leader Harriet Knudson and world renown architect Jens Jensen.
The annual fund drive asks for your support in financial assistance to care for the Garden and facilities, remain a leader in nature education and a steward of our prairie and woodlands. Annual fund dollars go directly to operating budget to fund daily needs such as educational supplies, tools and equipment and utilities.
