2011 WBFN Education Awards

The Willow Beach Field Naturalists (WBFN) members have always been strong supporters of outdoor education, believing that children need to experience the wonders of nature in order to develop a lifelong appreciation. Each year, we offer education awards to Northumberland County schools for projects or programs related to nature.

This year, the WBFN Executive Board is very pleased to support programs that reach out to a wide audience of students across Northumberland County, awarding $250 to the KPRDSB Laurie Lawson Outdoor Education Centre, and $250 to the Alderville Black Oak Savanna Education Program, open to all Northumberland County Elementary and Secondary Schools. We wish them much success and hope that our donation will help towards fostering a lifelong love of nature in students who attend the programs.

Some changes are being made to our next Education Awards Program. WBFN is shifting the timing for applying for the awards from the spring of the school year to the fall. The change will take place this school year. Applications from Northumberland County schools will be open in the Fall of 2012.
