It is vital that we expand interest in the tree and plant sciences as we face the devastating impacts of climate change. We need ways to increase learning and engagement in the conservation of trees and the natural world. Summer Science Camps, along with The Morton Arboretum’s other education programs, do just that.
A gift of $1,000 could pay for new iPads, used in Nature Photography and Filming in the Forest camps.
$500 could cover the cost of 2-way radios, essential to camp instructors for ensuring the safety of campers at all times.
$250 helps purchase microscopes and binoculars used by campers to better understand the world around them.
$100 could help provide fishing poles and nets, which help campers discover more about fish, the habitats they live in, and the important role they play in the Arboretum’s ecosystem.
A gift of any amount inspires the next generation of tree scientists.
