Duke Energy Awards Eno River Association $15,000 for Environmental Education

With a $15,000 donation, Duke Energy has continued its investment in the environment through support of the Eno River Association’s hands-on, feet-wet summer camp programs, iWalk the Eno Science & Nature Camp and Eno River Field Station.

“Our camps create future conservationists, and we are proud to partner with Duke Energy to offer such important STEM education.” says Jessica Sheffield, Executive Director of the Eno River Association.

Funding from Duke Energy will help the Association set camp fees intentionally low, provide need-based scholarships, and support resources for families where English is a second language. Thanks to past funding from Duke Energy and partners, Association summer camp programs have traditionally supported 30-50% enrollment by minority and low-income students.
