Cape Gazette SCHOOL & EDUCATION FRIDAY, JANUARY 22- MONDAY. JANUARY 25, 2010 81 DNS receives grant to-provide scholarships The Delaware Nature Society has received a grant from the Mid-Del Charitable Foundation to provide scholarships to chil- dren who might not otherwise be able to experience a science- based nature program. This grant will fund scholarships at Delaware Nature Society's Sus- sex County site, Abbott's Mill Nature Center in Milford. The Mid-Del Charitable Foun- dation was developed to consoli- date the charitable undertakings of Delaware State Fair Inc. and Harrington Raceway Inc. The foundation supports a wide vari- ety of Delaware nonprofit and philanthropic organizations through its annual grant pro- gram. At the award ceremony, held recently in Harrington, the Delaware Nature Society was lauded for the many contribu- tions it makes to Delaware and its citizens. The Mid-Del Chad- table Foundation released this statement: "From modest begin- nings, Delaware Nature Society has evolved into environmental education programs and camps for more than 1.3 million people. The organization has facilitated preservation of more than 100,000 acres of open space" "Delaware Nature Society ap- preciates this generous donation from the Mid-Del Foundation to the Abbott's Mill Nature Center in Milford," said Jason Beale, manager of Abbott's Mill Nature Center. "This donation will provide scholarship funding to many schoolchildren who otherwise might not be able to experience our hands-on school field study programs."
