The Foundation supports the Highlands Biological Station through funding for educational programming, scholarships, research, and daily operations. In addition, HBF has separate funds to support the outreach missions of the Nature Center and Botanical Garden. The membership program guarantees that the Foundation can continue to provide support to these organizations. We even have membership for kids!
