Become a Donor Today
Individual donors provide the foundation of support that makes Environmental Volunteers nature and science education programs possible. With your support we deliver over 550 school programs annually. We inspire over 10,000 students and assist more than 400 teachers in meeting their state science standards.
Your gift of support allows us to provide environmental science education for today’s students and tomorrow’s environmental stewards.
The Environmental Volunteers is a great success story. By giving individual, special attention to small groups and classes, EV volunteers continue to enrich the lives of thousands of school children by introducing them to the complexities of the natural world and the need to preserve diverse habitat. Mary and Ward Paine, longtime benefactors
