“These grants have been a vital resource for us here in the science department, as it is so expensive and difficult taking students out of the classroom. Our subject, biology, lends itself to going outside, yet so often we are confined to the walls of classrooms. We appreciate your conservation focus which was to provide support to outdoor field trips that teach students important environmental lessons.”
– Jessica Tiatia, 9-12th grade biology teacher
