Support Environmental Education for Youth in Mendocino County!
Become a member of the RVOEP—Support Environmental Education for Youth in Mendocino County.
Our members make up the core of support for the ongoing operations of the RVOEP. The ongoing commitment of our members makes it possible for us to provide our unique outdoor environmental education program to over 2,000 UUSD students each year!
By becoming a member, you share your passion for environmental education. You help young people share that passion. If you and your like-minded friends each support the RVOEP through membership, the program can help awaken an appreciation of nature that many children may otherwise go their whole lives without.
Access to outdoor environmental education for Ukiah Unified Students is entirely dependent upon the generous support of the local community. We are grateful to the School District for providing our wonderful site in Redwood Valley, but the District is unable to financially support any of the program’s operating costs, including salaries.
Please join or renew your membership today, and together we can continue to bring outdoor education and conservation science programs to children in Mendocino County.
