Local teachers are boosting the education programs at Quinte Conservation.

The conservation agency has recognized the “generous donations” from the chapter of ADK Labda – International Honorary Organization for Women Educators.

Quinte Conservation education and stewardship coordinator Maya Navrot says the group supports the programs all year round.

It includes sponsoring the Wild About Wildlife events attended by about 400 chidren this summer, to learn about water drainage and talk to experts while observing native snakes and birds of prey.

The rest of the donation from ADK Lambda will support Quinte Conservation’s other educational programs including Stream of Dreams and Yellow Fish Road.

Navrot tells Quinte News the group’s donation amount would not be released.
