Our annual Wreath Making fundraiser is a Pathfinder K-8 tradition. Students, teachers, and lots of parents help to make and sell beautiful live wreaths, with all proceeds supporting Pathfinder’s renowned camping trips and other outdoor adventures. Last year, we made over $10,000 for our outdoor education programs! Many thanks to Lynette Martin, Brent & Mary Morgan, and Sharon Aliza for leading this huge effort. Learn how you can get involved on our Wreath Making web page.
The The 2014 auction is March 8, 2014. Thu Le and Katie Guenther will host this biggest fundraiser of the year. Learn more and get involved here.
