The Ecosystem Health Program's BuckeyeFunder has only just begun!

November 12, 2019

We are a little over one week in on our campaign to purchase an in-shore boat for the Ecosystem Health program! Thank you to those of you who have supported our project so far, your contributions will go a long way! While we still have a ways to go, we are excited about our successes so far. 


Another way you can help our project is by sharing our campaign. If this is something you resonate with, please share our story! Every gift, no matter the size, will help us as we work to add to our program and expand our offerings for our students! Thank you!
