Soaring Eagle Ecology Center Receives Shade Structure Grant

Friday, February 26, 2016 - 13:30

SEEC is proud to be a recipient of an American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) Shade Structure Program grant. SEEC will receive an $8,000 grant to build a shade structure on SEEC land, just west of the geology trail. This shade structure will provide much needed protection from the sun's harmful UV rays for students and families participating in SEEC's free outdoor environmental programs. Thank you to the American Academy of Dermatology and a special thank you to local dermatologist, Dr. Brad Baack, for sponsoring SEEC's grant application. In the fall of 2016, SEEC will be holding a special dedication ceremony for our new shade structure after it has been installed. Watch for details on this website and the North Forty News as soon as the date is confirmed.  The photo above is similar to the shade structure that will be constructed at SEEC. THANK YOU!
