Pick Up for the Planet (PUP) Bin Sponsorship

This program, in collaboration with the Forest Service, BLM, Blaine County Recreation District, and other user groups lessens the aesthetic, environmental, and health impacts of unattended dog waste at local trails. Educational signage, weekly bin maintenance, and free dog waste bags are provided to 16 popular trailheads.

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

Send a Kid to Camp

EcoCamp

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!

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.

Every 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 year and helping to ensure our work continues into the future!
