Morning Star Foundation Renews Grant for DHC Education Programs

The Morning Star Foundation has awarded the DHC with a second grant of $10,000 for nature education programs in 2020. In 2019, funding from the Foundation supported DHC programs like Kids in the Hills and guided hikes such as the Halloween Hike event. These programs reach hundreds of local students and focus on nature education. The Halloween event, which was an education-focused, fall-themed series of guided nature walks, was one of the DHC’s most popular hikes so far, drawing a crowd of over 250 participants who had fun while learning about nature.

The Morning Star Foundation supports nonprofits like DHC that offer children “programs that serve the whole child through education, outdoor immersion, or learning through play and art.”

As the DHC continues to grow, education events have become increasingly popular. Funding from our partners like The Morning Star Foundation has helped us expand these events and their reach into the community. Check out our event listings for education events and volunteer opportunities.
