Marye Wells-Harley Dream Camp Scholarship Fund

To honor Marye Wells-Harley’s legacy to parks and recreation in our area, The Marye Wells-Harley Dream Camp Scholarship Fund was created to provide scholarships for children and teens to attend the Montgomery Parks’ summer camp of their choice.

Summer camp provides fun and life-changing experiences to area children, but due to financial constraints, some children are sidelined. This scholarship supports Montgomery County families facing financial challenges the opportunity to give their children the memorable experience of summer camp.

Tree Trust Established by P.J. Ryan and Joan Rubin

For over thirty years Joan and PJ have taken great pleasure strolling through Brookside Gardens — particularly enjoying the diversity of trees. In 2019 the couple generously established a Tree Trust, something P.J. felt a strong conviction to support. As a 35-year National Park Service Ranger he “came to recognize the critical importance of trees for humanity, especially as a deterrent to climate change.”

This fund will be used to purchase and replace trees as needed at Brookside Gardens. Your donation to the Tree Trust will help ensure that the Gardens may continue to display, preserve and protect trees in this special place.
