Camptown has been named as one of three Indianapolis Power & Light Company 2011 IPL Golden Eagle Environmental Grant recipients. Proceeds from this grant will bring nature education to urban youth through Camptown’s “How Wild is Your School” program, Eco Day Camps, and Canoe/River Clean-Up programs. These programs will give students the opportunity to see, touch and interact with the natural environment. These hands-on environmental education and nature experiences will help foster positive environmental attitudes while teaching sound environmental stewardship principles.
IPL Golden Eagle Environmental Grants provide funds for projects that will preserve, protect, enhance, or restore environmental and biological resources throughout IPL’s operating territory. Since 1993, IPL has contributed more than $1.2 million through this program.
