Tree of Knowledge

In addition to your membership, you may want to consider buying a leaf of the Tree of Knowledge. The Tree of Knowledge is an unusual opportunity to perpetuate your name or a name designated by you, or as a memorial to a special event, honor or personal or family happening. The name or event will be engraved on one of the tree's leaves with your gift of $1,000. At the same time, your important contribution will help sustain the Lederman Science Center and its programs. Please provide the inscription you want on the plaque.
