How You Can Help

Old Caterpillar Trailer

The Caterpillar: Pacifica’s Mobile Science & Nature Center offers a unique opportunity for children to learn about the natural world in a fun and exciting way. We have always tried to make our services as available as possible to our local schools and their students. That’s why we make sure schools only pay 1/3 of the cost of our visits. The rest of our money comes from grants, fundraisers, sponsors, and of course, the generosity of our friends! Donations to The Caterpillar (and to its parent company, Pacifica Garden) are earmarked primarily for ongoing programs like The Caterpillar’s school visits, field trips, and summer camps.

How to Donate

If you and your family have enjoyed what The Caterpillar brings to your Southern Oregon community over the years and would like to see it continue, please consider making a financial donation. We cannot provide our services without the help of our friends and neighbors like you! If you’d like to donate, please click on the link below and you will be taken to our secure PayPal donation page where you may safely and easily donate any amount you wish. Remember, The Caterpillar is part of Pacifica Garden, a 501(c)(3) corporation, which means that your contributions are tax deductible.

I find myself awestruck over and over again by this world, both by its amazing simplicity and by its incredible complexity. ~
