BEMP’s Operational Fund
Contributing to BEMP’s Operational Fund will benefit students, staff, and programs.
BEMP’s operating cost examples:
$10 – Supplies a rain gauge at one of BEMP 33 active monthly monitoring sites.
$25 – Provides a classroom set of BEMP educational materials.
$50 – Supports equipment and testing for water quality monitoring.
$125 – Covers printing costs for student research posters for scientific conferences.
$250 – Provides busing (one of BEMP’s largest costs) for 15 or more students to the bosque for monthly monitoring or study trips.
BEMP Capital Campaign
Build a gateway to connect tens of thousands of students to their home watershed. Your gift will support K-12 students from more than 50 schools as they trek into the Rio Grande’s riverside forest for Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program (BEMP) education and community science. BEMP’s capital campaign supports the construction of a permanent home at Bosque School within a Center for Community Engagement (C4CE). That building will be both a destination for BEMP events and an entry path into the bosque. It will include classroom, lab, gallery, and small and large group meeting spaces. The C4CE will be the confluence of community and environment. BEMP environmental stewardship and civic engagement will flow from the building you help to create.
In addition to BEMP, the Center for Community Engagement will support Bosque School’s programs and activities in its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity initiatives, Service Learning Curriculum, The Sofia Center for Professional Development, and Horizons Albuquerque.
Naming opportunities are available, including a special fund that has been established to honor BEMP Co-Founder Dr. Cliff Crawford within the Center for Community Engagement. For more information please call the Bosque School Resource Development or BEMP administrative offices at (505) 898-6388.
