NCOS Thanks You

What a year it has been! Looking back on 2019, the overwhelming support of the community is what we remember most. As we look forward to the construction of several North Campus Open Space public amenities such as the visitors’ plaza, discovery trail and overlooks, we would like to take this opportunity to honor the many donors that have provided foundational support. Read more here about some of the many people who have helped make NCOS possible and are ensuring the project and site will persist long into the future.
