It’s that wonderful time of year again when Minnesota non-profits and schools ask our friends and families to Give to the Max. Donations received between November 1 and and November 12 will be processed on the 12th, but all donations during that time qualify for prize drawings and the leader boards. Your donations help us buy basic equipment like tape measures so that our middle school students can learn some basic forestry techniques and practice math skills while we study phenology, the study of seasonal and cyclic changes in nature as influenced by sunlight, temperature, and precipitation. Many of our students do not have opportunities to go to science camps or visit state parks often, so we try to help them have science, tech, engineering, arts, and math experiences close to home. We appreciate your support.
