I read most recently that more and more people are getting outside to enjoy what nature has to offer. Even though the COVID-19 pandemic has been taking a toll on everyone, it's nice to know that many people are enjoying the great outdoors.

According to the Lansing State Journal, Woldumar Nature Center is a membership based, nonprofit, community organization located in Delta Township along the banks of the Grand River.

I love Woldumar Nature Center because they offer educational camps for children, they also put on community events and host special events like weddings and company retreats.

Woldumar Nature Center has been a part of our community for 57 years and they remain steadfast in their service to Greater Lansing.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Woldumar Nature Center had to close down rentals and delay the opening of summer camp.

In fact, they opened three weeks later than normal and suffered a heavy financial loss since their summer camp and rentals combined provide almost two thirds of their annual revenue.

"Once it became safe to reopen camp, Woldumar kept health and safety top of mind. They were able to provide a safe, nurturing space for children of those serving on the front lines of the pandemic. Half of our campers were from families of essential workers." (LSJ)

"One thing is for sure, nature's beauty doesn't stop in a pandemic. The trees will still shed their leaves, the ponds will freeze and the wind will continue to blow. Woldumar Nature Center is ready to serve our community." (LSJ)
