Give Your Support!
Before the Bioblitz, donors pledged on a per-species basis. Even though it's over until next year, your fixed amount gift is still welcome. Your “Dollars for Diversity” will be used to fund EFB graduate scholarships for conservation research and natural history workshops.

EFB is also seeking gifts of $15,000 and above to support conservation exhibits and educational outreach programs at the College’s new “Discovery Center.” For more information about the Discovery Center, please contact Andy Saunders at 315-470-6759 or dasaunde@syr.edu.
