PEEC's programs educate children and adults about the importance of environmental stewardship. Support and memberships enable thousands of children from the northeast to develop a greater appreciation for the natural world. Support from "Friends" helps us maintain affordable user fees. Your tax-deductible donation / Friends of PEEC membership also supports our community outreach, public programs, and facility improvement projects.

The Board of Trustees and staff of the Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) would like to thank everyone who supports our mission and efforts to provide quality educational programs and experiences for the thousands of people who visit and study with us each year. We will consider everyone who supports PEEC as a "Friend" and eligible to receive benefits..

"Friends" include our annual members, folks who contribute to the year-end appeal, event sponsors, campership contributors, and more.  Please be as generous as you can.  Your support is critical in sustaining the quality of programming that PEEC offers."

Dr. K. Joy Karnas, Chairperson, PEEC Board of Trustees
Jeff Rosalsky, Executive Director, PEEC
