International Paper Awards Grants to the Pink Palace Museum and Lichterman Nature Center

Posted on March 28, 2019 by Museum Staff

The Pink Palace Family of Museums is proud to announce two recently awarded program grants from The International Paper Foundation. Both programs provide no-cost admission for students attending Title 1 schools in Tennessee.  A $25,000 grant will fund environmental education programs at Lichterman Nature Center, including the Animals Alive! program which introduces students to animals native to the Mid-South. The grants sponsor admission for field trips for nearly 4,000 Shelby County K-12 students who would otherwise not have the opportunity to experience these programs.

The second grant of $25,000 supports the Pink Palace Museum Education Department’s Discovery Days program, which are activities and demonstrations centered around the exhibits. Discovery Days 2019 focuses on Memorable Memphians in the Bicentennial exhibit, Making Memphis:  200 Years of Community. In the spring semester, the program will support activities in the upcoming exhibit on Antarctic exploration, Race to the End of the Earth.  International Paper has supported educational programming at the Pink Palace since 1998.
