Give the gift of a life-changing experience in nature…


Join Eagle Eye Institute for our 15th Annual Hike-a-thon

The Hike-a-thon is Eagle Eye’s biggest fundraiser of the year. It’s a great way to show your support for our work engaging urban communities in environmental learning, leadership and stewardship, and also to connect with the Eagle Eye community! We need your help to raise funds for our youth programs next year – every donation you make or get from your network will be DOUBLED by our 1:1 match, pledged by two anonymous donors. Your generous donation helps us offer outdoor programs at our Berkshires site to Pioneer Valley and Boston youth from underserved urban communities.

This year, we will be hiking in the Middlesex Fells Reservation starting at Flynn Rink, located at 300 Elm St in Medford, MA. We will be joined by Friends of the Fells, who will lead the Eagle Eye community in a stewardship project to give back to the beautiful outdoor resource that is the Fells.

Help us get more urban youth outdoors and connected to nature, themselves and their communities. Register for the Hike-a-thon now, let us know your fundraising commitment, and ask your friends for their support!
