I know you’re worried about climate change. I am too.

The disastrous effects of climate change are already here – yes, even inside the Delco Bubble. Extreme weather events, rising sea levels, melting glaciers, and warming oceans are causing turmoil for people and animals. We desperately need to stop global temperatures from climbing any higher. If we don’t, we stand to lose everything we care about.

I know this problem can feel overwhelming. But your everyday actions make a difference in the fight against climate change.

Over and over, you make small choices that make a big difference. You choose to carry your groceries in a reusable bag. You choose to drink from a refillable water bottle. You choose to support Tyler Arboretum.

Yes, that’s right. Your support of Tyler Arboretum makes a difference in the fight against climate change, right here at the local level.

Donate now to join me in the fight against climate change!

Your Annual Fund donation – received by December 31 – will help:
– Further Tyler’s conservation efforts,
– Educate your community about the climate emergency, and
– Inspire others to join the fight!

You can help further Tyler’s conservation efforts.

When you donate to Tyler’s Annual Fund, you’re taking immediate action to help further conservation efforts – right in your own community.

Conservation is a word we hear often. But what does it mean? Simply put, conservation is the act of protecting Earth’s natural resources for current and future generations. And when it comes to the fight against climate change, conservation is key!

In fact, one study found that nature conservation could provide over one-third of the emission reductions needed to keep global temperatures under control.

Your gift to Tyler’s Annual Fund helps conserve 650 acres of green space that might otherwise be lost to land development.

But that’s not all. You’re also supporting Tyler’s ongoing conservation programs, such as our Pink Hill serpentine barren, American Chestnut Tree Orchard, Bluebird Box Program, Sunflower Project, and more.

With your support, Tyler Arboretum can continue to be an important center for conservation in your area and an important player in the fight against climate change.

I know the issue of climate change is important to you. And you can do your part to stop it. Right here. Right now. Right in your own community.

It’s easy for you to help. Take a moment now to donate online. Your support shows that you understand the critical threat posed by climate change. But more importantly, it shows that you are willing to do your part today to heal our planet – starting right here at Tyler Arboretum.

You can help educate your community about the climate emergency.

One of the most important things you can do right now to fight climate change is talk about it. When you talk about climate change, you are bringing this important issue to the forefront.

And right now, you have the unique opportunity to amplify your voice and reach even more people – through Tyler Arboretum.

Here at Tyler, we work hard to get people thinking, talking, and learning about nature, climate change, and the future of our environment. We do this through programs, tours, blog posts, explainer stations, social media posts, and more!

But we can’t do it without you. When you donate to Tyler’s Annual Fund, you’re providing the resources we need to educate your community about the climate emergency and get them talking about it.

You can inspire others to join you in the fight against climate change!

Your gift can also start a chain reaction – as you inspire others to join you in the fight against climate change.

With your gift to Tyler, you are setting an example for others. You are showing that it’s important to invest in our community, our planet, and our future. I am so thankful that Tyler Arboretum has caring supporters like you, who are so passionate about nature and the environment.

In times of crisis, it’s vital that everyone does their part. And the planet is in a time of crisis right now.

I know nature is important to you. And I know you want to do your part to fight against climate change… now, before it’s too late. Luckily, it’s easy to make a difference.

Please make your donation online today.

Your Annual Fund gift will have long lasting effects as more and more people in your community learn about the climate crisis and join the fight. Together, we can make a difference!

Thank you for ALL you are doing to protect our planet from the threat of climate change.

For the love of nature,

Mandy Santiago
