Scholarships

 

THE KELLY AURENTZ SCHOLARSHIP FUND

This scholarship fund was created in memory of Kelly Aurentz , a long-time member of the club, and a firm believer in the preservation of our natural resources .

This scholarship is a part of the Delano Dollars For Scholars.  Each year we contribute $500.00 to the fund, to be used to assist a graduate from  the Delano High School that is pursuing  a degree in environmental, natural resources or similar field.  If it is not used in a particular year, it is carried over to the next year, however, only $500.00 is awarded in a year.

 

LONG LAKE CONSERVATION CENTER

Each year the club sponsors campers to go to the Long Lake Conservation Center.  It is an  environmental learning center , located in Aitkin County.  It is a place for kids to go for a week to learn about nature and the environment.  They learn to canoe,  play environmental games, and  to learn more about our natural surroundings.  The club usually will send  three to four campers a year.  Dates  for the trips vary.  For more information, watch the newsletter.
