Education

Rosie Bloom Scholarship Award

The Rosie Bloom scholarship is awarded annually to a local educator interested in furthering conservation and environmental education.

Rosie Bloom was a charter member of Audubon Miami Valley. She exemplified the qualities of the Audubon ideal-love for nature and the willingness to work to preserve it. The award is used for camp session fees at Hog Island Audubon Camp off the coast of Maine. Transportation, longer stays, and additional fees are the responsibility of the participant.

Hog Island Audubon Camp is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year. Since 1936 its residential sessions have been taught by some of the most respected naturalists and environmental educators in the nation, inspiring countless teachers and conservationists. Go to hogisland.audubon.com to find more information about the camp and sessions offered.

The Rosie Bloom Scholarship is supported by Audubon Miami Valley through donations and fund-raising activities such as the annual birdseed sale. Contributions are tax deductible and should be made payable to Audubon Miami Valley, PO Box 556, Oxford, Ohio 45056.

Earth Club

AMV has increased interest and support for after-school conservation programs.  We continue to be a sponsor of the elementary school program Earth Club, in partnership with the ENVIRONMENTAL MOBILE UNIT (EMU).  The memory of outdoor hands-on experience in nature will last the whole of these student’s lives while creating the next generation of conservationists.

(More information about our education programs is on the way!)
