Spring for Education

Dustin Angell, Archbold Education Coordinator,
with a local school group visiting Archbold.

More than 1,300 children take advantage of Archbold’s Environmental Education programs annually from Highlands County and surrounding areas. In 2018, our Summer Camp program served a record attendance having over 104 students with a focus on reaching deserved children who would otherwise be underrepresented. Archbold strives to reach even more children and have greater impact. But, we can’t do that without you! Thankfully, Archbold Board of Trustee Robert Lloyd George and his wife Donna of Palm Beach, along with Costa Farms have once again made possible a special camp for the children of Costa Farms employees. For the last four years, they have helped to fund this special camp. And this year they are launching a $5,000 gift to help kick-off our "Spring for Education" appeal. An additional generous gift for Archbold Education was received from Warren "Abe" and Chris Abrahamson which will help reprint our Scrub Coloring Book enabling Archbold to continue providing these beautiful coloring books to children who visit Archbold for the next several years. Look for the "Spring for Education" appeal this April on social media and email. Please consider helping Archbold’s Education program as we get ready for Ecology Summer Camp, now in its 28th year.
