Ward Museum Goes Green!

The Ward Museum, Salisbury University, is proud to announce two green awards that exemplify the Museum’s commitment to sustainability. The Ward Museum has been awarded the Salisbury University’s Green Fund Grant to monitor water quality in Schumaker Pond in conjunction with school students throughout 2015. Additionally, The Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art has been awarded the Maryland Association for Environmental Outdoor Education Green Center Award.
The Salisbury University’s Green Fund Grant promotes social, economic and environmental sustainability and positively impacts the student experience at Salisbury University. Through this grant, the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art intends to provide opportunities to the student community of Salisbury University as well as Wicomico County students to study water quality and the overall health of the environment surrounding Schumaker Pond.
The Maryland Association for Environmental Outdoor Education Green Center Award is given to facilities to recognize their efforts in implementing environmental education, best management practices and community engagement. As a certified Green Center, the Ward Museum continues to provide educational experiences, professional development, and support to local educators and students through local certified Green Schools. In addition, Ward Museum education staff and volunteers will assist schools in satisfying the requirements to become certified as a MAEOE Green School.
