Make a gift today to invest in building a community of committed Christians who care about God’s good earth.

With your support, we have inspired and educated thousands of people, including:


  • Jack, a third-grade student from a local elementary school, who participated in an environmental education program and spent hours in the woods identifying plants and animals

  • Rebecca, a sophomore in college who took a summer class in Lake Ecology & Management and developed stewardship plans for local lakes, streams and wetlands

  • Mark, a recent college graduate who spent six weeks as an Environmental Education Intern and honed his skills as a Christian educator and leader

  • Megan, a senior in college who served as a research assistant for an externally funded study determining best methods to reforest abandoned oil pads

Each of these stories represents a changed life and a person who is better equipped to play a leadership role in caring for creation.
