Miller Environmental Education Fund
The Miller Environmental Education Fund is pleased to announce the funding recipients for 2015. Funding was given to the lakes Region Conservation Trust for the Red Hill Trails Project. Moultonborough Academy students will participate in the creation of an interpretive sign for the summit and families from the Harvest Church of Moultonborough will work with the LRCT installing new trail markers. The Red Hill Conservation Area is extremely popular and provides a wonderful opportunity to educate residents and visitors about the natural and human history and the geography of the property and the region. Once in place, the new trail and signs will provide great educational opportunities for Moultonborough youth and visitors alike.
Funding was also provided to the Sandwich Children’s Center to further develop outdoor learning centers as part of a permanent outdoor classroom while they work toward their national certification as a Nature Explorer classroom. Grant funds will allow the SCC to upgrade some existing outdoor space with new materials increasing student’s time outside and enhancing the outdoor experiences.
The Miller Environmental Education Fund was developed in 2007 out of a profound appreciation for the service and dedication of Michele Miller, former principal of Moultonborough Central School and the 2006 NH Environmental Educator of the Year award recipient.
