Key to the success of all our programs is community support, and one way you can show your support is by making a monetary donation. We need your financial support to run our award winning Environmental Study Team program, to operate and maintain our buildings as well as the nature preserve. Your donation will also support our ongoing folk arts and music programs. The Scboharie River Center is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and all monetary donations as well as vehicle donations are tax deductible.
We are also planning major renovations to our Science Center to make it handicap accessible as well as expand the facility to allow us some space for a science lab for the EST program. We’ve already started raising money for this, but have a long way to go.
The Schoharie River Center has always been here for the community since it was founded in 1999, with EST programs that serve the city of Schenectady, the Duanesburg area and the Gilboa-Conesville area, after-school programs for youth in three counties. We’ve opened our doors to the community with innovative programs such as Archeology Field School, Silent Movie Nights, Dry-Laid Stone Wall Building, Rag Wool Rug Making, Fly Tying, Schoharie River Day and much more. For the past two years, we’ve operated a six week long summer jobs and educational program for students from the city of Schenectady.
We hope you will consider making a tax deductible donation to help us continue to bring you more innovative programs in the future. We have many ideas, and the sky is the limit! We want you to be a part of it.
