In an effort to slow the spread of Covid-19 we are postponing the Buffalo Tro. We apologize, but hope you understand our reasons for doing so. As soon as we know more we will announce the new date for this event.

Buffalo tro - Steaks

You're invited to join us at Touch of Nature’s annual signature fundraiser, the 2020 Buffalo Tro! 

We've moved the Buffalo Tro to coincide with the first ever Touch of Nature All Staff Reunion to be held the following day.

This event raises funds to enhance our facilities and services at Touch of Nature in order to offer the best to our customers and visitors. You’ll enjoy appetizers and refreshments from Southern Illinois businesses, and have an opportunity to bid on a variety of live auction items. 

While the Buffalo Tro is all about enjoying an evening of great people, food and entertainment at Touch of Nature, it’s also about how your support helps our programming areas: Recreation TherapyEnvironmental EducationAdventure EducationVeteran Adventures and our Hospitality Services.  Thank you for your generosity in keeping this jewel of Southern Illinois University thriving for many years to come.
