General operating grants are the Sanctuary’s most important form of support, underwriting all Hawk Mountain conservation science and education programs, visitor services, and Sanctuary operations and maintenance.
The $5,000 funding provided by the PPL Foundation will contribute to the numerous educational events, workshops, and lectures that are provided for members and the public, as well as continued support for ongoing conservation research.
“This type of grant supports everything we do at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, from global training and research to leading school groups to welcoming hikers,” says Director of Development Mary Linkevich. “We couldn’t be more grateful.”
“We at PPL believe in environmental stewardship,” said Carol Obando-Derstine, PPL Electric Utilities’ regional affairs director. “We commend Hawk Mountain for working towards creating lasting change through their educational programs and conservation research, which is why we are pleased to support their efforts. They are also contributing positively to the region by making it a great destination to visit.”
