Google, Inc. Charitable Giving Fund of Tides Foundation gave a holiday gift to NatureBridge, in the form of a $4 million grant over a three-year period to improve environmental education.

Over the past 40 years, NatureBridge has taught almost one million children across California and Washington state about inquiry-based science and real-world environmental research.

With the grant, NatureBridge can bring 10,000 additional students to its residential programs, deliver hands-on training to 850 teachers and develop community-based environmental education training programs.

“We are grateful for the millions of Google users who helped us ring in a strong year, and we want to do our part to help charitable organizations that have inspired us with creative and effective programs,” said Michael Terrell, Google policy counsel for energy and environmental programs. “We are pleased to support the great work of NatureBridge with funding that will provide thousands of students with environmental education in the national parks.”
