The Burning Foundation Grant Award for our Conservation Director support!
Gray Family Foundation: Science Wednesday Environmental Education Materials
In 2016, Umpqua Watersheds received a grant from the Gray Family Foundation to provide funding for every 5th grader to attend a field trip to Crater Lake National Park. Throughout, the fall and spring we are leading these trips along with parent chaperones, many of which are experiencing a national park for the first time! The enthusiasm is fantastic and we love to see & hear the youths reactions as they first see the lake!
