SPECIAL EVENT: Subaru Share the Love Reception and Check Presentation

April 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

FREE

Join Ijams Nature Center and Grayson Subaru in celebrating the success of the 2018 Subaru Share the Love event on Monday, April 22, at 10 a.m. during a check presentation and reception!

Grayson Subaru officials will present Ijams Executive Director Amber Parker with the donation, which breaks last year’s record as the largest amount to-date presented by Grayson Subaru to a local hometown charity.

Grayson Subaru Sales Manager Randy Carter  said, “This gift is possible because Grayson Subaru customers have again shown their love not only for Subaru vehicles but also for Ijams Nature Center. Subaru of America’s Share the Love Event makes a difference on both the national and local level. It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to give back to an organization in our community in such a significant way.”

Ijams plans to use the donation to assist in cleaning up and restoring the Grayson Subaru Preserve, a 13.46-acre site that will ultimately feature footpaths, natural play elements for children and observation areas for parents that will allow them to watch their children but not inhibit their nature free play. The site also will be a place for citizen science and other Ijams education programs.

In January 2019, Ijams contracted with Invasive Plant Control, a company based in Nashville, Tenn., to conduct a mass removal of invasive species on three acres of the property running along Island Home Ave. Volunteers removed about 100 pounds of trash and 29 tires from the site during the 30th annual Ijams River Rescue presented by TVA with support from Lowe’s on April 6.

Thank you to Subaru of America, Grayson Subaru and everyone who participated in the 2018 Subaru Share the Love Event! Please come celebrate what you’ve accomplished!
