1000 750 Stroud Water Research Center

Announcing a $50,000 Challenge Match Grant generously sponsored by the Colket Family Foundation to benefit the Future of Fresh Water Education Initiative! This challenge grant will enable Stroud Water Research Center to sustain and expand our community-wide education and training programs, curricula, and instructional technologies. Your charitable donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar thanks to the generosity of the Colket Family Foundation.

“The world we live in benefits greatly from Stroud Water Research Center,” says Bryan Colket. “From fishermen to farmers to other animals and organisms, we are all affected by the quality of the water on this planet. Through education, outreach, and scientific exploration, the Stroud Center is finding innovative solutions for preserving and restoring fresh water.

“My family believes in the importance of keeping our water clean and doing all in our power to help make that happen. We hope you will join us in supporting the Future of Fresh Water Initiative.”

Executive Director and President David Arscott, Ph.D., says, “On behalf of the Stroud Center, I can’t thank the Colket family enough for their support and encouragement for our work. Our Future of Freshwater Initiative is critical to build a more sustainable future for the Stroud Center in pursuit of our mission. I encourage everyone who supports the environment, clean fresh water, and watershed education to take advantage of this opportunity to double the impact of your donation. Your support for our work is greatly appreciated and needed.”

Our professional development and training programs prepare educators to replicate similar activities in their local streams and classrooms.
