The Raymond Foundation continues its generous support of the Leonard Springs Nature days through a $15,000 grant to the Bloomington Parks Foundation. The funds will be used to support three years of nature experiences for local children.
The City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department, in collaboration with Sycamore Land Trust and Monroe County Community School Corporation, hosts the Leonard Springs Nature Days. This program was developed to help kids learn about our environment while meeting state Science standards and getting them excited to pursue future career options in the life sciences. The program hosts 4th-6th grade classes through an array of hands-on learning stations at the Leonard Springs Park.
Much thanks to the Raymond Foundation for their continued support of this valuable nature experience and education for our community’s children!
