Each year ECRI's Eduction Fund offers 3 Rhode Island schools & after-school programs a $250 Loraine Tisdale Environmental Education Grant to support school-based environmental education projects.
These environmental education grants honor the memory of long-time ECRI activist, Loraine Tisdale, who was well known for her work with youth and her work with the organization Group Against Pesticide Spraying. Loraine’s "old-school" raffle ticket selling method for funding the Awards has been successful for the past 14 years but now has come up against new challenges in today's world.
This year ECRI starts a new tradition: An online auction to fund the Tisdale Awards.
Special thanks go to our Auction Sponsor: Clean Ocean Access
Bidding starts April 5th 2021 @ 7:30pm and continues until April 25th 2021 @ 11:00pm
