Signature Events Celebrate Nature Discovery

Elachee holds an annual event that raises funds to benefit children, nature education and conservation efforts.

Our dedicated community volunteers and staff have quite the reputation for bringing together friends of Elachee for casual, fun and memorable parties that are among the most anticipated regional events each year!

2018 Flights of Fancy Benefit & Auction

Saturday, May 5, 2018, 6-9 p.m. Sponsorship Details

Help Elachee’s dreams take flight at the Nature Center's annual fundraising event. Witness spring in bloom and see what’s new at Elachee. 

Gather with friends on Elachee's patio to experience the breathtaking view of the Chicopee Woods Nature Preserve, while eating and buying local. 

And, oh, what an auction! Whimsical one-of-a-kind treasure, outdoor entertaining items, garden and nature art will vie for your attention in the silent auction. Or, engage in a raucous live auction for that something you just can't live without!
