Please take time to educate yourself about Lyme Disease. The following sites are excellent sources of information: Lyme Action Network (lymeactionnetwork.org), Project Lyme (projectlyme.org) and Lymedisease.org.

The mission of our Scholarship fund is to help make the planet a better place to live by providing awareness and experience in one of the following fields of study: horticulture, agricultural science, forestry, botany, ecology, environmental science, soil and crop science, natural resource management, land use management, habitat science and green technology. We know the importance of teaching our young people to be aware of these goals and we want to do a small part by helping them on their career path in one of these fields.
Our 2023 Scholarship Award recipient is Samuel Webster who is planning to attend The State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. This is a public research university in Syracuse focusing on the environment and natural resources. We wish him well as he begins his college studies. Linda Miller, Scholarship Chairperson, awarded the Club's very first scholarship to Samuel at the Guilderland High School Award Ceremony.
