The Cooper Center for Environmental Learning sits on a large piece of land just west of Tucson that is – there’s no other way to put it – absolutely stunning. But the facilities haven't changed since the 1970s. Now Cooper is in the middle of an extreme makeover to completely transform the center and expand its ecological and cultural mission, thanks to some very generous donors.
Cooper is about to begin construction on an eco-friendly bathroom and shower facility, along with a solar-shaded outdoor classroom. Cooper has raised 80 percent of the funds needed, thanks to gifts both large and small.
Now Cooper needs your help to close the gap by March 1 to break ground in the next few months. And – good news – the next $14,500 we receive will be doubled!
Cooper Director Colin Waite has made the media circuit about Cooper's historical impact on Southern Arizona, how they've weathered the pandemic, and plans for the facility improvements.
