Pitt State’s Biology Department receives a major funding boost thanks to a local utility.
Westar Energy Foundation has granted nature reach $10 thousand dollars. The check was presented to Nature Reach Director Delia Lister by Westar Representative Justin Swezey and R.J. Lubber.
Nature Reach has been part of the PSU Biology Department since 1985. The program provides environmental education to schools and community groups, promoting sustainable at-home and community practices.
The money will help fund Nature Reach’s efforts to teach the next generation to be good environmental stewards.
