Without the support of our community, Joe Ford Nature Center wouldn't be able to continue offering free programs and opportunities for people to come and commune with nature.
Joe Ford Nature Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing educational programs to the community at no charge. It was always Joe's wish to continue providing programs at no charge to all interested parties within our community and surrounding areas.
Everyone knows that recycling helps our planet, but Joe Ford Nature Center has a
few ways you can help the planet and JFNC at the same time. Aluminum cans may
be taken to Southern Recycling on Grimes Avenue in Owensboro, KY and you can
ask them to credit Joe Ford Nature Center. Every penny helps to continue Joe's
legacy! We have completed our plastic cap bench project and, with your help, we have collected enough caps to make THREE benches made of recycled plastic caps. Thank you to Ella King, Tommy and Cathy Mullins, and Joyce Yeiser for sponsoring the three benches, and THANK YOU to everyone who collected caps over the past few years. We hope you will enjoy the benches placed at Joe Ford Nature Park.
