Corning Incorporated Foundation helps education programs at Wells Reserve

Posted by | January 28, 2011 | Filed under: News

WELLS, MAINE — School field trip programs and public education offerings at the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve are getting a boost from a donation made recently by the Corning Incorporated Foundation to Laudholm Trust, the Wells Reserve’s nonprofit partner.

“The educators at the Wells Reserve do an excellent job engaging people in environmental learning,” said Diana Joyner, president of Laudholm Trust. “This grant from the Corning Incorporated Foundation will give them the support they need to keep innovating.”

Every year, Wells Reserve education programs give hundreds of school children and their teachers hands-on instruction in a variety of coastal habitats and a dedicated teaching laboratory. In addition, scores of public education programs, ranging from guided nature walks to brown-bag lunches, reach thousands of visitors to the Wells Reserve at Laudholm annually.
