Support the Program


The Educators of Excellence Fund empowers educators by improving their teaching skills and inspiring them to remain committed to the profession of teaching.

The Fund:

  • Provides a stable funding source for the Museum to continue and to expand opportunities for experience-based teacher education.
  • Enables outstanding educators to experience the natural world firsthand.
  • Teaches students about our many ecological connections to the rest of the world by informing and empowering their teachers.
  • Maintains a network for exceptional educators across the state for support and continued learning.
