Fundraising Ideas for School Groups:

catching money

  • With continued state and school budget cuts, many groups are finding it more challenging to pay for a trip to Ebersole Environmental Center.  We are compiling a list of funding ideas to help groups and would love to hear from groups with other creative funding options!  Our Funding Idea list can be found here.

Ebersole Earns Grant:

medical cross

  • Ebersole Center recently received a grant from the Pennock Foundation for much needed medical supplies for the Ebersole clinic. Thanks to the generosity of the Pennock Foundation Board,  Ebersole Center was awarded a Life Pac 1000 AED. This defibrillator is top of the line and is a valuable asset to the health and safety of our visitors and staff.

Ebersole Receives Environmental Award:

Ranger Randy with Turtles

  • Ebersole Center was awarded an Environmental Education Award from the Michigan Deputy Ranger Patrol (Laroehm's Rangers).  Ranger Randy Wilson nominated Ebersole for the award after learning about Ebersole's educational programs while he visiting the Center to release two rehabilitated painted turtles in June.  The turtles had both been hit by vehicles and had suffered non-life threatening shell injuries prior to being rehabilitated and released into Jackson Lake.

    Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2009 Ebersole Foundation Fundraiser a success!  Our goal was achieved and we raised enough funds to complete the payment for the farm property!  The Foundation is now shifting the focus toward supporting Ebersole Programs through student scholarships, endowments and more immediate program support.
