Fenner Conservancy supporters Susan and Jack Davis are major philanthropists in the Greater Lansing area. Thanks to their leadership gift in support of this donor patio, they have paved the way for others to support our mission of connecting people to nature in the heart of Lansing through conservation, education, and stewardship.


In the shade of our beautiful visitor center, overlooking the pond and with a view of the butterfly garden, sits a campfire ring. The fires in this ring have cooked hundreds of gallons of apple butter, set the mood for families to enjoy some warmth after winter night hikes, and for decades, have helped youth learn how to build campfires during Nature Day Camp.

This ring, full of memories, will be the centerpiece of our donor patio. Your name, or those of your loved ones, will be read for years to come in the flickering firelight that bounces off of the trees, the pond, and the building itself. We invite you to pull up a seat, smell the wood smoke, and lose yourself in nature amongst the names of hundreds of other Fenner supporters, just like you.


Each brick that is purchased provides funding that is directly invested in a solid future for Fenner. We need this support to meet our mission, and this is a meaningful way to leave your mark in the history of our special place. 100% of the proceeds from each brick purchased will be used to deliver high-quality environmental education programs, care for our park through habitat improvement, and maintain our four miles of trails.


Purchasing one or more bricks is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to support Fenner. Whether you’d like to show your support by placing your name on a brick, or you’d like to memorialize the memories created with loved ones, your bricks will forever be a part of Fenner Nature Center.
