Pine Lake opens doors. The Pine Lake experience guides students in constructive ways, enabling them to make a difference in the world.

Today’s Pine Lake students have something to say about the dynamics of a changing world and the passion to act on their intuitions. Through their education, they seek opportunities to explore bodies of knowledge, pose critical questions, and pursue their resolutions–not for a grade, but for a better understanding of the world around them. Their hunger for knowledge and action is not satisfied through passive lectures, but through active engagement in the verse of the poem, the arc of the watercolor, and the contours of the landscape. Our students are consistently the catalyst for sustainability initiatives at Pine Lake and on the main campus.

Join their efforts. Support their exploration. Please consider making a gift to Pine Lake.

The energy, enthusiasm, and leadership displayed by Pine Lake students offer great hope for a sustainable future. Your donation of any amount to Pine Lake will ensure that our students can continue to work, live, learn and explore at an environmental campus worthy of their highest expectations. Your support is critical to sustain our programming. Be part of this important work. Please, make a gift today.
