TILT, Save The River and Minna Anthony Common Nature Center have established the Kenneth Deedy Environmental Internship Fund, in honor of Ken, his passion for the Thousand Islands, and his vision for its conservation.
Held at the Northern New York Community Foundation, this fund will be used to hire a high school or college student for a summer long internship. The student will work for all three organizations, immersing them into the fields of land conservation and stewardship, environmental education, and environmental advocacy.
Before his passing, Ken made the initial gift to establish this fund and thanks to the generosity of many supporters and a $50,000 grant made by the Northern New York Community Foundation, over $160,000 has been raised!
Thank you to all who donated to this fund and helped contribute to Ken’s outstanding legacy.
