Overall Goal of the Fund

This fund was created in support of environmental education in the outdoors. The purpose of the fund is to remove monetary barriers to getting young people outdoors and in nature to learn from the unique assets here in northern Michigan and to support educators who are making environmental education activities a part of their curriculum.  Since 2007, the Community Foundation has funded dozens of trips for hundreds of young people to explore our remarkable outdoor assets.

What Can They Do with the Funding?

The funding is fairly flexible so long as it achieves the goal of helping kids learn through our natural environment.  Examples include transportation costs to visit nature preserves, purchase of materials like journals for observation activities, or educator training on facilitating outdoor education.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Who is Eligible? Emmet County schools and the not-for-profit organizations that provide outdoor education.
