Inspired by the program’s impact on the students and her own love of the wild, Tracy provided pro bono legal services to NatureBridge for years, before joining the National Board of Directors in 2000. She served for 19 years in a variety of roles, from Vice Chair of Operations, to Board Secretary and Chair of the Risk Management and Nominating Committees. With her most recent commitment to NatureBridge, Tracy joins the 1971 Society, a community of dedicated donors who have bequeathed legacy gifts to the organization. She has directed her bequest toward scholarships for children whose access to nature is otherwise limited and whose lives would be forever changed by NatureBridge’s transformative programs.
As much as she treasures it, Tracy is even gifting the Galen Rowell photograph to NatureBridge.
“I’ve got a note taped to the back of it, ‘Return to NatureBridge when I die,’” Tracy laughs. “I truly am just the steward of the photograph.”
We are deeply grateful for Tracy’s time on the board, her stewardship of the beloved photo and her generous legacy gift that ensures future generations of students the opportunity to explore our national parks through environmental science. If you’d like more information about planned giving at NatureBridge, please contact Aaron Rich, Chief Development Officer at email@example.com or 415-992-4761.
