Support the Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre (ELEEC)

The Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre is run under the auspices of the Queen's University Biological Station, Charitable Registration Number (BN) 107868705, and relies on public support for many of its activities including public outreach and stewardship of conservation lands. The ELEEC provides a premier venue and exciting roster of programming for schools and the public. The goals of this facility are to raise awareness of environmental and conservation issues, and facilitate experiences with the natural world.

Donations to ELEEC

To help us operate and enhance this amazing facility we have created the Community Outreach Fund. Gifts to this fund will be used to support environmental education and outreach intiatives, including our Eco-Adventure Camp

Our "Wish List" of Goods and Services:

Office chairs for the main Pavilion:  THANK YOU to Martin Garster, Business Interiors (Ontario) Inc., for coordinating the donation of 12 new chairs to replace the old and torn ones!

Upholstery skills:  Someone to teach a simple upholstery workshop and lead volunteers in repairing the seats of our old office chairs, which are now used in Rec Hall.

New propane BBQ for the main Pavilion:  The exisiting one is becoming less and less reliable...

Dissecting microscopes:  To enhance our limnology and macroinvertebrate investigation programs, which we run year-round.

Two fold-up tables, approximately 3x6 feet, for Rec Hall:  So that we can accommodate more students in class and more participants in meetings.

Fold-up screen for Rec Hall:  To accompany a recent donation of a projector, this would enable us to run presentations and slide shows simultaneously in both the Pavilion and in Rec Hall.

Enclosed, locking bulletin board for main Pavilion:  A proper place to post event notices and other information for our visitors.  Right now, we tape posters to the windows...
