Sandoway Receives Grant


Staff report

Sandoway Discovery Center received a two-year grant totaling $90,000 from The Jim Moran Foundation.

The funds will be used to support Sandoway’s Education and Animal Care Program, which allows students and visitors to learn environmental education through hands-on activities and live-animal encounters.

The grant will also allow for the purchase of a new environmental education book to be sent home with every student participating in Sandoway’s Junior Naturalist Program from a Title I school.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to enhance and strengthen the student experience at Sandoway and we are most grateful for the support of The Jim Moran Foundation and the confidence they have placed in our education programs,” Executive Director Danica Sanborn said.
