Hello! I am Kurt Karlovich, Mayor of the City of Sunbury, Pennsylvania.

I am asking for your help to contribute to the "Sunbury Wetland Community Nature Park". Your contribution(s) are GREATLY appreciated and will help us tell the story and share the history of this property and give the public a safe place to be, whether for educational purposes, hiking, relaxing, or spending time with their pets and family.

This project will preserve the natural aspects of the property with the plant and animal habitat and will be one of a kind for all ages, all people, all animals, and all school districts, universities and colleges to use and explore.

THIS PARK WILL CONSIST OF:
A 100% protected Wetland area designated by the Army Corps of Engineers, raised Boardwalks, hiking trails, educational/information boards, outdoor classroom/sitting area, fenced in DOG park area, and an off street parking lot.

All donations from this GoFundMe will be given directly to the City of Sunbury and placed into the Wetland Project Fund to be used and only used for this community project.
