House passes scholarship program bill

Each year, the Bartramian Audubon Chapter awards one teacher scholarship within the chapter’s four-county area of Lawrence, Butler, Mercer and Venango counties.

This year’s scholarship enables the awardee to attend the July 12-17 session, “Sharing Nature: An Educator’s Week,” of Audubon Camp on Hog Island, Maine.

It is open to teachers of any grade level or subject area. The session offers practical approaches, methods, lessons and activities for engaging both children and adults to the world of nature. Participants learn while exploring the forest, intertidal and ocean ecosystems of the scenic Maine coast.
