Visitors to Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Berks County will continue to enjoy educational programs, events, workshops and lectures, thanks in part to support from PPL Electric Utilities.
PPL Electric Utilities has awarded $5,000 in Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) funding to Hawk Mountain. This grant will support the Sanctuary's educational programming available for school groups and to the public.
"We are thrilled to have PPL as a corporate partner who supports our efforts in conservation education," said President of Hawk Mountain, Geri Unger.
"PPL is committed to improving the communities where our customers and employees live and work," said Carol Obando-Derstine, regional affairs director for PPL Electric Utilities. "Organizations like Hawk Mountain improve the quality of life in our region, and we are pleased to be able to support them."
The 2,500-acre Hawk Mountain Sanctuary is the world’s first refuge for birds of prey and is open to the public year-round by trail-fee or membership, which in turn supports the nonprofit organization’s raptor conservation mission and local-to-global research, training, and education programs.To learn more about this and other programs and upcoming events, visit the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary website or call 610-756-6961.
