Presented by Frost Brown Todd and David & Pat Peterson

Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve’s fourth annual Butterfly Ball was held in-person on May 20, 2022 at our picturesque and gorgeous site. The evening featured delicious cocktails with an open bar in the Woodland Garden, slow jazz with The Ron Jones Quartet, an exquisite dinner, fantastic auction items and a butterfly experience. WAVE 3’s multiple Emmy-award winner, Shannon Cogan, was our Host, along with Meterologist Kevin Harned. It was an unforgettable evening!

This special gala brought together friends and neighbors with the inspiring purpose to build a high design and multi-purpose Forest Friends Event Center, provide scholarship funds for Thrive Forest School families in need, and ensure the preserve is always protected, free, and open to the public. We offer the state’s first full-time nature-based Thrive Forest School and serve the community through school field trips, with recreational fields for team practices, and by offering annual community-events that bring nature and community together.
