Donate to support the Preschool for the next 20+ years to come.
Help make exceptional experiences in nature available to all! Your gift will support scholarships to families with financial need. Because of you, more students will have access to learning in 110 acres of environmental preserve for many years to come.
Rock the Barn is Dodge Nature Preschool’s biggest (most fun) fundraiser of the year. This year, we’re moving the party online! From May 12 – 19, bid on themed baskets filled with preschool favorites. Proceeds raised from the auction support the Dodge Nature Preschool scholarship fund.
This event will be held entirely outdoors, with CDC and MN Department of Health procedures in place. Please dress for the weather. Because of the group setting, face masks are encouraged. Hand sanitizer and hand washing stations will be available.
