7 Ponds Nature Center lets 7 Area Schools explore outdoors
The Four County Community Foundation was pleased to award a $10,000 grant to the Seven Ponds Nature Center from its Dora and Toos Ondersma Fund. Annually the Foundationís Board determines proactive grants from the Ondersma Fund. This is the second year that this fund has supported the No Child Left Indoors Project. The funds awarded to Seven Ponds Nature Center were used for seven school districts in our service area to have field trips to the center. Seven Ponds Nature Center is located in Dryden where they have 468 acres and over six miles of trails to see. Students from the seven school districts were able to travel the trails and learn about the outdoors. Some of the great things students were able to see when visiting were glacial lakes, ponds, marshes, fields, and woodlands which all provide a sanctuary for many different species of wildlife and plants.
