Environmental Community Opportunity (ECO) Fund
Environmental stewardship is a part of Intermountain Gas Company’s mission and daily life, and our commitment to the communities we serve is taken seriously. As part of our continued environmental commitment, Intermountain Gas Company – along with its three sister companies – has established the ECO Fund to support projects that enhance environmental education and stewardship in the communities we serve.
Environmental education projects may include grants for teacher training, books or equipment for classroom use, field trips or special project support in the natural or physical sciences.
Community environmental stewardship projects may include such things as nature trail development, wildlife area enhancement, recycling and community cleanup promotion, or the development of ‘living laboratories’ for the use of students and the general public.
Some limitations apply. See the ECO Fund brochure for details of the program and the ECO Fund Grant Application Form to apply.
2022 ECO Grant Awardees
More than 60 students representing 10 North Dakota schools participated in the 22nd annual ND Envirothon in early May at Crystal Springs Camp near Jamestown, North Dakota.
The event was funded in part by an Environmental Community Opportunity grant from Montana-Dakota Utilities.
Students completed four trail tests in the areas of wildlife, aquatics, prairie/forestry, and soils. The top three teams competed in the final round of presentations in front of a panel of five judges and other teams, advisors, and volunteers.
Students also heard two presentations from Kathy Froelich, a Sahnish Elder who talked about wild plants, the importance of knowing your cultural background and nature.
