On November 1st, we were named as a recipient for a KEEN Effect grant! Out of 880 organizations that applied, we were one of eleven that received funding. This generous support will help us to grow our programs in ecology and recreation, allowing for increased focus on youth engagement with the outdoors. Through this new grant, we are increasing field trips to our Sea Turtle Protection and Conservation Center and incorporating new biological facets into our community bike rides. We look forward to cultivating this new partnership and increasing environmental education opportunities for our communities.
