Consumers awards education grant to Huron Pines

NORTHEAST MICHIGAN – Gaylord based nonprofit Huron Pines is pleased to announce it has received a $20,000 grant from the Consumers Energy Foundation to support place-based environmental stewardship programs for K-12 students.

Place-based stewardship education involves learning through hands-on experiences that support the environment and community where a student lives. These efforts provide students with the knowledge and skills to become active stewards who can engage in natural resource protection and restoration.

The funding provided by the Consumers Energy Foundation will allow Huron Pines to work with four schools across the region and host two teacher trainings to support school efforts to implement place-based stewardship initiatives in the classroom. Examples of potential place-based stewardship education projects include school forest management, river monitoring and rain garden installation.

Huron Pines Environmental Education Coordinator Emily Vogelgesang explained, “The purpose of this project is to address the challenges and opportunities facing natural resources in our region by developing environmental stewards. It also connects students to education and career opportunities available in their own communities.”                                                                               

“Consumers Energy is committed to ensuring Michigan has world-class natural resources, and protecting our land, water and air for future generations to continue to enjoy,” said Carolyn Bloodworth, secretary/treasurer of the Consumers Energy Foundation. “We are pleased to support Huron Pines in its efforts to preserve Northern Michigan’s natural beauty, but also to provide an invaluable hands-on educational experience to students and teachers in our public schools.”

Huron Pines is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1973 to protect, restore and conserve Michigan’s natural resources. To learn more, visit huronpines.org.
