THE BOLSA CHICA CONSERVANCY IS AWARDED $5,000 GRANT FROM MTN DEW OUTDOOR GRANTS
TO HELP SUPPORT EDUCATION AND RESTORATION EFFORTS

 

 

Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve (Jan. 18, 2022) – The Bolsa Chica Conservancy has received one of forty $5,000 MTN DEW Outdoor Grants in support of the organization’s ongoing commitment to champion the great outdoors. Based in Huntington Beach, CA, the Conservancy is a 501c3 nonprofit devoted to restoring and conserving one of California’s largest remaining coastal saltwater marshes, while also educating visitors of all ages of the importance of these scarce ecosystems. As an organization that is passionate about the outdoors, we believe it is crucial that we all do our part to protect and preserve the lands we love and enable people to get outside.

 

The Bolsa Chica Conservancy looks forward to using the $5,000 grant to support our C.A.R.E program (Community Action in Restoration and Education), which encompasses our restoration and education programs. This funding will aid in purchasing necessary restoration materials – such as trash bags and pickers, and maintaining equipment – while also supporting our various education programs. Through this, the Bolsa Chica Conservancy will be able to continue our mission of restoring and conserving the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, as well as providing unique educational experiences that are designed to inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.

 

“To be recognized by MTN DEW and our local community for our work and commitment to the outdoors is very special,” says Patrick Brenden, the Conservancy’s CEO. “We are so excited to receive a $5,000 grant to help us bring the message of conservation of one of our state’s most vital resources to more people in Orange County and beyond during a time when it matters most.”

 

The Conservancy is one of forty nonprofits to receive a grant through the MTN DEW Outdoor Grants program this year. The effort by MTN DEW is part of a long-term commitment to help community organizations across the U.S. who have faced funding and volunteer participation challenges due to the ongoing pandemic, and to provide outdoor enthusiasts with more access to the great outdoors by helping remove some of the key barriers. The brand has donated more than $1.25 million to fuel outdoor passions to-date.
