Exciting Two Months for Environmental Studies Council
It’s been a spectacular two months at the Environmental Studies Center, thanks to the hard work of the 501(c)(3) that supports it, the Environmental Studies Council.
On March 29, the Council learned that it was awarded a $100,000 grant from Impact100 Martin for its Wet Lab Revitalization.
Then, on April 1, months of hard work culminated in a successful gala that celebrated the Center’s 50th anniversary and netted over $110,000.
Key sponsors included Ann & Knight Kiplinger, M.E.’s Team, Seacoast Bank, FPL and Kay Sutton. The 140 attendees enjoyed a buffet dinner, tours of the Bay Tree Lodge property in Sewall’s Point, music, and live and silent auctions.
Proceeds will be used to fund capital improvements including the Wet Lab Revitalization, as well as assist with the Council’s regular expenses of a teacher’s salary, community education and outreach, and boat-related expenses.
