In June 2017, the Wisconsin Environmental Education Board was eliminated due to state budget cuts. However, the Board’s directors, who have expertise in environmental education, remained committed to continuing the work. Therefore, the directors began merger discussions with the National Resources Foundation of Wisconsin. The merger would afford immediate capacity-building in environmental education and strong relationships with some of Wisconsin’s top environmental education providers. The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration helped to fund one-time costs associated with the merger.
