CORNING INCORPORATED FOUNDATION HELPS EDUCATION PROGRAMS AT WELLS RESERVE
Environment, Schools

WELLS, MAINE - School field trip programs and public education offerings at the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve are getting a boost from a donation made recently by the Corning Incorporated Foundation to Laudholm Trust, the Wells Reserve's nonprofit partner.

"The educators at the Wells Reserve do an excellent job engaging people in environmental learning," said Diana Joyner, president of Laudholm Trust.
"This grant from the Corning Incorporated Foundation will give them the support they need to keep innovating."

Every year, Wells Reserve education programs give hundreds of school children and their teachers hands-on instruction in a variety of coastal habitats and a dedicated teaching laboratory. In addition, scores of public education programs, ranging from guided nature walks to brown-bag lunches, reach thousands of visitors to the Wells Reserve at Laudholm annually.

The Wells Reserve at Laudholm is a National Estuarine Research Reserve with its headquarters listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Wells Reserve staff and volunteers expand knowledge about coasts and estuaries, engage people in environmental learning, and involve communities in conserving natural resources. The Wells Reserve goal is to protect and restore coastal ecosystems around the Gulf of Maine.

The work of the Wells Reserve and the care of its precious site are made possible by Laudholm Trust. Organized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in 1982, the member-supported Laudholm Trust provides vital monetary and in-kind support to the Wells Reserve. This local support enables the Wells Reserve to receive additional funds from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The Wells Reserve at Laudholm is located just off U.S. Route 1 near the Wells-Kennebunk line.
