The Gala

Let’s go glamping at Cope Environmental Center’s 2019 Gala! Mark your calendars for Aug. 24, 2019.

Thanks to the skills of the Gala Committee (Ginger Franklin Gray, Cheri Jetmore, Patricia G. Heiny, Francie Klinge, and Pam Merchanthouse) Cope’s Sustainability Education Center will be transformed into a luxurious glamping get-a-way on Saturday, Aug. 24, 2019.

What is glamping? Glamping is luxurious camping or glamour camping. It’s getting away from all the hustle & bustle and connecting to nature, all while enjoying modern comforts that give you that R&R you need. There are many ways to go glamping – what is your glamping style? You are only limited by your imagination! Check out Pinterest for some glamping ideas!



Jen and Tom Ferrell from Radfords Meat Market & Deli are busy planning an incredible dinner featuring locally sourced ingredients.

The gala is an annual celebration of Cope Environmental Center’s mission to promote the sustainable use of the earth’s resources through education, demonstration, and research! CEC specializes in environmental education for children, adults, and seniors.
