Irvine Nature Center - 2021 Annual Report

Page 1


LETTER FROM DIRECTOR No one would argue that the past year was one of the most challenging. Our lives were disrupted, uncertainty prevailed, and we were compelled to do many things differently. As spring approached and reminded us that nature pushes forward no matter what, we began to emerge both figuratively and literally. Like the periodical cicada that had been nourished underground for seventeen years, we metamorphosed. At Irvine, we were innovative about fulfilling our mission by embracing new technology and also getting back to our roots. Our educators and participants adapted and showed how they could thrive outside in all conditions, while we also reached new audiences through virtual programming. And we were able to do this thanks to you, our loyal supporters. Many of you recognized our evolving needs and worked with us to keep this incredible place open and accessible to visitors, volunteers, and program participants realizing that being outside was both safe and nurturing. As spring turned to summer and we approached the end of our fiscal year, the cicada reminded us how important it is to plan for the future. The mighty Brood X spent their last moments ensuring the success of the next generation and so have we. Just imagine what Irvine will be like when they emerge next. While that generation is nourished underground, we will continue our work fulfilling our mission and providing this unique resource to our community.

Executive Director

Spring 2021 brought the emergence of the Brood X cicadas. For 17 years, they fed and tunneled beneath the soil. When they surfaced from the ground, they shed their exoskeletons, found mates, attached to branches, and laid eggs for the next generation.

PEOPLE & PROGRAMS Nature teaches us many lessons, and one important lesson Irvine learned during the pandemic was about adaptation. By adapting, we found new ways to fulfill our mission to stay connected with the community and our audiences. Our littlest learners – those in our Nature Preschool — adapted by experiencing nature-based learning completely outdoors. Through all sorts of weather conditions, our Preschool students thrived outside. Their parents were thrilled that Irvine was able to host Preschool under safe protocols.

“We have watched as Elanor has grown into an inquisitive, kind and adventurous person under the nurturing guidance of The Nature Preschool teachers and staff. Spending the majority of days outside has made her a confident and capable explorer. This past year in particular, it has been a great source of joy and peace to watch Elanor learn to find refuge in nature, a skill she will carry throughout her life.” Anedina Canzian and Eric Stiner Irvine Nature Preschool Parents

“Irvine is a local treasure that provides opportunities for our families and friends to explore and learn about nature. Constellation Energy is proud to support an organization that prioritizes environmental education. When our customers and our communities are better educated about nature and the environment, they can make more informed choices about their energy use and energy providers. Irvine’s impact extends well beyond its campus.” David Dardis Senior Vice President, Exelon Corporation and General Counsel, Constellation

Children in our Earth Friends Homeschool Program didn’t let any unfavorable weather conditions stop them from exploring and discovering the wonders of nature on Irvine’s property.

Irvine’s educators adapted and found new ways to offer nature-based programs to children and families. They faced the new realities of remote learning by producing high-quality, age-specific virtual lessons, activities. and animal presentations. They pivoted our popular in-person Eco-Explorer program into a virtual learning experience for kids to conduct nature-based activities in the comfort of their own backyards. Through the generosity of the Galanthus Foundation, Irvine partnered with the Baltimore Hunger Project, a local nonprofit that addresses food insecurity issues to area students. Irvine delivered 155 Nature Adventure kits with a theme of “Get Out and Explore Nature” to 2nd through 5th graders.

“We support Irvine because it has provided us with tools and experiences to help our children become environmental stewards. Beyond that, we see Irvine as a critical resource for Baltimore, where both adults and children can learn about and connect with nature in a life-affirming way.” Meg and Rob Lawrence Longtime Irvine members and supporters

Irvine was honored to be chosen by Trout Unlimited as the official site for a new virtual Trout in the Classroom program. Tanks were added in our Exhibit Hall to house young trout and Irvine livestreamed the growth and development of the fish for school children all over Maryland. Just as Irvine’s educators shifted to virtual platforms during the pandemic, event planners for our signature annual fundraiser Pumpkins on the Green adapted by hosting a virtual event, Pumpkins on the Screen, incorporating many of the event’s favorite elements: great music, delicious food and drinks, exciting entertainment, and fabulous silent auction. Guests were invited to Irvine to pick up meals and pumpkin crates filled with goodies and enjoy entertainment on their screens from their homes.

“Sanaa and Selah had a wonderful time attending Irvine’s Nature Camp. Every day they came home excitedly telling stories about their day. They loved the nature hikes, learning about creatures in the streams, exploring the garden and doing all the arts and crafts. They would happily return and hope they have the opportunity in the future. Thank you for giving them this wonderful experience.” Carissa Hubbard Irvine Summer Nature Camp parent

Thanks to the Devito Family Trust, Irvine welcomed camp scholars from Glyndon and Reisterstown Elementary Schools earlier this summer.

Adam Powell has spent most of his life at Irvine. He attended Summer Camp as a child and participated in the Junior Naturalists program. After volunteering on the trail crew and with animal care, he was hired to help with public programs. He has recently assumed many roles at Irvine including Visitor Services Coordinator, Camp Counselor and Animal Care Assistant. Our homegrown employee is pictured here with one of his favorite raptors, the Great Horned Owl.

COVID forced us to close and conduct layoffs, and it was difficult to say good-bye to some very talented staff members. As Irvine has emerged from the pandemic and started to resume programming, we have been able to hire some amazing new staff to help Irvine expand our programming, reach new audiences, steward our land, and grow as an organization. All Irvine staff have learned and grown in their respective roles this past year.

“It’s amazing to stand on the hill overlooking the meadow and see nothing but rolling hills, trees and greenery. Intellectually, you know there’s a major commercial area to the west with thousands of homes, businesses and schools, but you can wander the paths, gaze out over the pastures and feel the peace and quiet. Irvine is in the heart of my district, close and convenient for so many. I love that it doesn’t take me long to get there.” The Honorable Shelly Hettleman Maryland State Senator, 11th District, Baltimore County

PROPERTY For quarantine-weary families, Irvine provided a physical escape from the confines of home; a safe and secure place to be outdoors; and a protected environment to find respite. Thanks to the creativity and expertise of new Irvine Environmental Educator and Master Gardener, Dr. Clare Walker, new and interactive features have been added to our Native American Site to make the learning experience about our ancestors more fascinating. Clare has also doubled the size of the Three Sisters Garden with plantings of squash, beans, corn, and pumpkins to showcase the harvesting process for young students.

With the support of The Charles T. Bauer Foundation, Irvine constructed a gatehouse at our entrance where Visitor Services staff greet visitors six days a week. Our official greeters are thrilled with their new digs. The new gatehouse provides important protection for them during the changing seasons and unpredictable weather. Pictured above left are our dedicated Visitor Services staff. Sophie Fuchs, a Park School student, conducted her senior art project at Irvine by painting a spectacular mural on the back of the gatehouse depicting Irvine’s mission. (pictured above top) It provides guests with a recap of their visitor experience when they depart the property. Irvine welcomed four summer interns to help clear new trails for even more pathways to explore nature on our property. (pictured above right)

PARTNERSHIPS Irvine has partnered with many local organizations over the years to help us fulfill our mission. We have enjoyed a longtime relationship with our neighbor, Stevenson University, and this year, 26 students in a Conservation Biology class completed 20 hours of volunteer service as part of a service-learning component of the class. Students helped Irvine with a variety of projects to enhance our property and then conducted online presentations about what they learned from the experience. Irvine also forged a new partnership with Towson-based Chesapeake Mental Health Collaborative (CMHC) who now uses our property for nature-informed therapy sessions. CMHC, along with many other wellness organizations in the area, were part of the new Health and Wellness through Nature program launched this fall. Wellness classes ranging from tai chi to meditation to nature photography are being offered in addition to the creation of a therapeutic herb garden at wedding point near Irvine’s wetlands.

“Our partnership with Irvine has exceeded our expectations. We’ve been able to integrate nature-informed therapy with our clients in the most beautiful way possible.” Heidi Schreiber-Pan Clinical Director, Chesapeake Mental Health Collaborative

DONORS The previous pages have showcased a year in which Irvine adapted to face challenges during the pandemic and emerged as a stronger organization. We are grateful for our ability to serve so many diverse audiences by providing a beautiful place for outdoor exploration and nature therapy and by offering robust educational programming for all ages. We thank each and every one of you for standing with us and continuing to believe in our mission to bring nature to life for children and families.
