The fair is the center's largest annual fund-raiser, said Bo Glover,
executive director, adding that the center has sponsored the event for
more than 20 years.
Last year, more than 2,500 people attended the five-hour fair, which
raised $24,000. Glover said he hopes to raise $30,000 this year.
Proceeds will go toward operations and a fund-raising campaign to help
the center purchase one acre of land adjacent to its site. Each year,
approximately 10,000 schoolchildren from all over Southern California
visit the center, Glover said.
ENC started a campaign called "Save Acres for Nature" in 1988. Of the $1
million needed to purchase the land, the center has raised $700,000,
which includes a $200,000 grant received from The Steele Foundation. The
new land will feature an educational center and library.
