Fort Ross Education Fund


Fort Ross Conservancy created a scholarship fund to ensure that all students have access to great outdoor programming, regardless of income level.

Please consider making a donation today so that we can bring all students to Fort Ross to experience our diverse natural and cultural history.

This fund supports both our Marine Ecology and our Environmental Living programs.

The Fort Ross Education fund has received support from local community members and the California Coastal Commission.
