Pick Up for the Planet (PUP) Bin Sponsorship

Educational signage, weekly bin maintenance, and free dog waste bags are provided to 16 popular trailheads valley-wide.

Sponsor one of the following PUP bins at $2,500 for two years with a $1,000/year renewal rate.  Sponsorship includes customizable signage that says “Supported by [your business name!]” and covers the following costs: new bin, sponsorship signage, educational outreach, bags, and weekly servicing of the bin.

Available trailheads include (north to south):

  • Chocolate Gulch
  • Lake Creek East
  • Taylor Canyon
  • Adam’s Gulch
  • Quigley Canyon

Send a Kid to Camp


Every summer, the ERC offers two weeks of overnight camp for rising 5th-6th and 7th-9th grade students.  Campers are fully immersed in our natural world and engage in hands-on activities that connect them to nature and give them the passion, tools, and confidence to become our future environmental leaders.  Every year, the ERC receives requests for over $3,000 in financial aid.

  • $600 sends one kid to camp!

This year, the ERC financially and programmatically supported the Wood River Middle School’s 44th annual Residential Outdoor Environmental School (ROES) overnight camp that reaches nearly every 6th grade student.  Help us ensure this opportunity continues into the future.

Business Membership

None of the above options interest you or fit your needs? Consider joining the ERC at the $100 business level. You will be recognized on the ERC website and in our annual report.

Each tax-deductible sponsorship dollar you give goes directly into initiatives that ensure the health and well-being of the environment and community that we love, now and into the future.  Every gift matters, so please consider supporting the ERC this season and helping to ensure our work continues for another 25 years!
