Donate to BEMP
Thank you for supporting the Bosque Ecosystem Monitoring Program (BEMP). Your gift to BEMP allows us to continue our mission of Community Science, Education, and Stewardship: Equitable and inclusive hands-on student research essential to the management of the Rio Grande ecosystem.
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. The 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, and will be the confluence of community and environment. BEMP environmental stewardship and civic engagement will flow from the building you help to create.
Naming opportunities are available, including a special fund that has been established to honor BEMP Co-Founder Dr. Cliff Crawford. For more information please call the Bosque School Resource Development or BEMP administrative offices at (505) 898-6388.
