Secure a Lasting Legacy with a Commemorative Bench at the Woodland Regional Park Preserve

With the Woodland Regional Park Preserve’s grand opening to the public planned for late 2022 or early 2023, the City aims to raise $25,000 for ten commemorative benches that will provide ample seating for Woodlanders to sit, relax, and enjoy our community’s nature park. 

Over the past several years, the City of Woodland, Tuleyome, Explorit Science Center, California Waterfowl Association, and several other project partners have made strides in the restoration of the Woodland Regional Park Preserve thanks to $1.5 million in grant and City funding, City staff resources, and countless volunteer hours. This 160-acre nature park, located along Road 102 and Road 25A, includes a pond, vernal pools, and an ADA walking trail. Furthermore, it is home to twenty different plant species, resident and migratory birds, coyotes, and other wildlife.

The City invites our community to make a lasting impact and honor a loved one with a $2,500 commemorative bench donation. This gift will include the procurement of a dedicated bench made from recycled plastic, installation along the nature trail, and a personalized engraved plaque. Donors will receive a receipt for their tax deductible donation.

Several community members and organizations have already donated five benches, including California Waterfowl Association, Lars Anderson, Meg & Tom Stallard, Susan Torguson and Dr. Glen Holstein, and Woodland Tree Foundation.
