Because of the federal freeze on hiring, “Ding” Darling is unable to fill its current vacancy for an education specialist ranger. However, a generous education grant from an anonymous donor matched donations dollar-for-dollar to fund a full-time, certified environmental educator for the Refuge.
Thanks to our generous donors, we raised $20,000 to receive a match for a total of the $40,000 needed to continue funding educational visits for more than a 1,000 students in school year 2017-2018.
