We Need Your Help!
The Troy Community Land Bank just sold us the last abandoned building on our block and we have an opportunity to transform it into an urban environmental education center for our NATURE Lab program. This will be a permanent space for discovery and scientific exploration in one of the most economically disadvantaged neighborhoods in New York state.
With your help we can build the NATURE Lab Environmental Education Center (with a full laboratory!), empowering our community to be more scientifically literate and active contributors to the health and wellbeing of our neighborhood from the grassroots up.
Thanks to a few generous individuals and grants from NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, the Howard and Bush Foundation, McCarthy Charities, we’ve already raised more than $80,000 of the $100,000 required to purchase and renovate a vacant building on our 6th Avenue block into an urban environmental education center.

Real change happens from the ground up. Every community should have a place like the NATURE Lab Environmental Education Center. Please help us plant this seed in North Troy.
