Lakeland Bank Sponsors Flat Rock Brook

50th Anniversary Logo Stacked CMYKFlat Rock Brook Welcomes Lakeland Bank Corporate Partnership

The snow may be blanketing the trails on our preserve, but Lakeland Bank is committing to support summer activities at our preserve.

Flat Rock Brook welcomes Lakeland Bank as our newest corporate partner.  The bank will  lend support to several of our initiatives.  Lakeland has committed to sponsor a Summer Nature Day Camp Scholarship for a lucky child that will have the opportunity to spend a week enjoying interactive discovery in nature.  The lucky camper will spend a treasured part of their summer exploring the forest, pond, and meadow through nature activities, crafts, and games.

Lakeland will also be a Bronze Sponsor at our Annual "Run in the Wild 5K Trail Run this August.  The run provides participants with the unique experience of running through forested trails in such a densely developed and populated area.  The event raises awarenss of our 150-acre preserve while raising funds to help support our preservation and education mission.

Flat Rock Brook welcomes Lakeland Bank to our family of corporate partners.

Friends of Jill Bennetta Raise $1,004 for Flat Rock Brook

GFF HawkJill Bennetta Fundraiser Supports Raptors and Education

Friends and family of Jill Bennetta celebrated her life and love of Flat Rock Brook by hosting a fundraiser in honor of her 44th birthday.  Jill was Flat Rock's beloved Education Director for over a decade.  We lost her far too early after she lost her fierce battle with an illness last year.

During her time at Flat Rock she positively impacted thousands of children and adults with her infectious love of the natural world and irresistible charm.  Jill was the face of environmental education at Flat Rock Brook for thirteen years. During this time she developed engaging programming for children that fostered and cultivated their love of nature and inspired their power to protect it. 

Jill was particularly  known for her love of our raptors - a group of non-releasable birds that call Flat Rock Brook home.  She travelled  with our birds to deliver Birds of Prey Programs. She shared the importance of their place on our planet with groups, instilling an appreciation of these birds to riveted audiences.

Jill's loving friends and family raised funding to support a one-year Hero Level Adoption of our Great Horned Owl - Jill's favorite girl - and additional funding to provide general support to our environmental education program. 

The entire staff and board extend a warm "thank you" for your generosity and for honoring Jill's memory at Flat Rock Brook.
