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 in support of children with demonstrated need in making their summer camp dreams a reality.
This scholarship allows children to explore their natural world through dynamic and engaging summer camps while they make memories that will last a lifetime.
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.
