We offer numerous ways for businesses to support DNS, while receiving name recognition and contributing to the health of the community. Here are some options:
Support Our School Enrichment Programs:
DNS Provides free science enrichment programs for every student in Ignacio, Bayfield, and Durango at our 140-acre Nature Center. To allow us to continue this essential standards-based program, consider sponsoring one of our schools. Sponsors will be recognized by each school, have their logo on our school program website page (seen by thousands of people each year), and have their logo on any other merchandising connected with the program.
Become an Event Sponsor
DNS hosts 4 successful events each year that add meaning to living in Durango. Each event is anticipated annually by the community. By sponsoring one of our events, businesses will have their logo on the event’s web page, have their banner hung at the event, receive verbal and print recognition in advertising, and have their logos on the posters.
All Events Discount ($1,100)
Support a High School Field Scholar
DNS conducts a semester-long field science class for DHS and Animas High Students. The experience allows students to create a field project, build their resume, and receive expert science instruction. The top field science student receives a $500 college scholarship. $1,000 supports one student for one semester. Corporate donors will have their logo displayed on the program web page, a t-shirt given to each field science student, and in ads and program publicity.
After School Nature Club Scholarships
DNS holds an after-school enrichment program for K-2nd graders at Durango grade schools. Students enhance their love for nature and science through this program. To sponsor a child in need to participate for the year is $500. Donors will have their logo displayed on our Nature Club web page, seen by hundreds of parents each year.
