3M Awards More Than $400,000 In Eco Grants

3M is awarding more than $400,000 in grants to nine environmental organizations for projects aimed at improving science-based environmental and conservation education for youth. Since 2001, 3M’s environmental giving program has invested more than $21 million in sustainability initiatives. 3M Eco Grant recipients are providing environmental programs that help students connect science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education with the world around them.

The grant recipients are nature and environmental learning centers located in communities near a 3M facility. Recipients were selected based on criteria including: their goals to connect STEM education and nature with outdoor learning opportunities, provide education that encourages environmental stewardship, and to increase student visits and teacher preparedness—thereby extending the learning beyond a single visit.

“3M is committed to sustainability, and these educational programs are helping to connect the future workforce to nature and science as well,” said Kim Price, Vice President, 3M Community Affairs. “We are proud to support these organizations in their efforts to enhance environmental education, and we look forward to seeing the measurable results of the Eco Grants in action. Each of these grant recipients has demonstrated an outstanding idea for how their program can be served by this funding, and we are pleased to help them reach their goals.”

3M’s Eco Grant recipients include the Delaware Nature Society, located near the Newark, Del., 3M facility. The organization will apply its grant to its Watershed Stewardship Program, which will design a statewide outdoor watershed experience for seventh grade students. 3M employees with training will have the opportunity to mentor students during the outdoor watershed lesson.

Another honoree, the Chippewa Nature Center, located near the Midland, Mich., 3M facility, will use the funds for its Nature School program, in which classrooms move to the Nature Center for a weeklong immersion in nature and science.
