The Gala

Keep an eye out for next year’s theme for the Cope Environmental Center Gala 2020!

Save the date and mark your calendars for our next outdoor adventure on Saturday, Aug. 29, 2020.

The gala is an annual celebration of Cope Environmental Center’s mission to promote the sustainable use of the earth’s resources through education, demonstration, and research! CEC specializes in environmental education for children, adults, and seniors. The health of our planet is important to us, and education is the only way to make sure that we are taking care of it properly. We need your support to help keep our community aware and actively taking care of the Earth!

Past Events –

The Glamping Gala 2019

Thanks to the skills of the Gala Committee (Ginger Franklin Gray, Cheri Jetmore, Patricia G. Heiny, Francie Klinge, and Pam Merchanthouse) Cope’s Sustainability Education Center was transformed into a luxurious glamping get-a-way for last year’s Glamping Gala 2019.

What is glamping? Glamping is luxurious camping or glamour camping. It’s getting away from all the hustle & bustle and connecting to nature, all while enjoying modern comforts that give you that R&R you need. There are many ways to go glamping – what is your glamping style? You are only limited by your imagination! Check out Pinterest for some glamping ideas!

Jen and Tom Ferrell from Radfords Meat Market & Deli planned an incredible dinner featuring locally sourced ingredients.
