Benefit Lunch

One of the most important days of the year for us at Dahlem is this annual fundraiser, which raises those hard-to-come-by unrestricted dollars that allow us to pay the utility bills and salaries. We are looking for some table captains who would like to help us by inviting their friends, and we are also inviting all of you to come on out and support us.

Little Acorns

The mission of the Dahlem Little Acorns Nature Preschool is to provide an environment for children to explore, create, imagine, learn and grow through hands-on activities and experiences; to promote social, emotional and cognitive skills; and to instill a lifelong love, respect and understanding of nature.
