Mission Statement, Purpose, Vision and Values
Earthshine Nature Programs was founded in 2010 by naturalist Steve O'Neil. Our mission is to provide a unique learning environment and opportunities for everyone that will foster a lasting curiosity, interest, respect, love and hopefully greater conservation of wildlife, wild places, and the fragile environment that supports us all.
We work to provide exciting outreach programming taking our wildlife and nature conservation, science advocacy, and renewable energy messages to local, regional and worldwide communities via schools, libraries, camps, offices, churches, special events, festivals, and other public and private organizations and online via our website, Youtube channel, blogs and Facebook page.
We have created and maintain a one of a kind, solar-powered, nature and science education classroom that is open to our students throughout the week and to the public by appointment.
We provide a wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, and conservation-focused nature center facility for the continued conservation and study of our native wildlife.
We function as a collaborative entity seeking to work with other organizations with the goals of wildlife and nature conservation, education and exploration, nature and science awareness, and the promotion and expansion of renewable energy and zero and low carbon resources such as solar, wind, micro-hydro, electric vehicles and their infrastructure.
