Contribute to getting kids and families outside

We deeply appreciate your support. Every dollar helps the Straub Environmental Center connect our community to nature!


Our 2018 nature-based education programs are well underway! Please consider making a contribution this season. Here are some examples of how your donation will make a difference:

• A donation of $25 will purchase a nature journal and field bag for one outdoor school student.
• $50 will cover the instruction costs for a “Passport to Nature” family nature outing.
• $150 will make it possible for an entire classroom to go on one of our Eco Explorers field trips.
• $250 will sponsor a child’s tuition for our natural science summer camp.
