2024 Fund-A-Needs:


Scholarships – $5k goal

Support the next generation of environmental stewards by contributing to our scholarship fund. This fund directly supports funding for individuals or groups of students to participate in our programs. It may go towards the cost to attend or event finance the high cost of bussing so that classes can get to BBA for a field trip. Experiences at BBA have an incredibly important impact on the lives of so many and we strive to have zero barriers of access.

Education Supplies, Equipment & Training – $5k goal

Invest in the advancement of environmental education by supporting our initiative to provide essential supplies, modern equipment (ex. microscopes, microspikes, etc), and comprehensive training resources for our educators. Your contribution ensures that our programs remain innovative and impactful.

Water Damage Trail Recovery Fund – $5k goal

Preserve the beauty and accessibility of our natural landscapes by contributing to the Water Damage Trail Recovery Fund. Your donation aids in the restoration of trails affected by recent water damage, ensuring that individuals can continue to enjoy and explore the trails year-round.

Technology Needs – $5k goal

Empower our organization to utilize technology effectively in our efforts. Your support of our Technology Needs fund enables us to implement digital tools and resources, enhancing our ability to work efficiently and effectively so that we can have even greater impact. This may include anything from software, a point-of-sale hardware system for events and our store or updated computers and printers for our staff.

General Fund – $3k goal

Provide vital support to sustain our mission of environmental education, conservation and land stewardship. Your contribution to the General Fund allows us to maintain our trails, develop new educational programs, and expand our efforts, ensuring that our resources remain accessible to the community 365 days a year.
