Celebrating 50

In 2021, Belwin marks 50 years of connecting people with nature

 

In 1971, Belwin Conservancy began hosting outdoor education on 150 acres. In the decades since, Belwin has grown to more than 1,500 acres, and thousands of people have visited Belwin to learn from and explore our natural habitats. Are you one of them?

We want to hear your story!

Whether Belwin has been your place to hike the trails, star gaze, bird watch, listen to music, watch bison, cheer for young athletes, or all of the above, we want to hear from you. To say thanks, contributors will be entered in a drawing for a private bison buggy ride.*

Your stories will be shared throughout the year in celebration of this landmark anniversary.

*Winners will be notified by email. Drawings will take place this spring and again at the end of the summer. Buggy rides can be socially distanced, but may also take place at a later date given public health concerns at time of drawing.

Join the celebration!

All year long we are celebrating Belwin’s first half decade with events, exhibits, and more. Visit our events page to learn more about how to join the fun with the return of in-person events in the second half of 2021.
