Rent an Education Trunk

We are proud to announce the availability of Michigan Arbor Day Alliance Environmental Education Trunks.  The purpose of the environmental education trunks is to allow educators in Eaton, Ingham or Clinton County the opportunity to rent a trunk for a period of time to supplement their existing classroom materials.  Trunk materials will provide educators with the opportunity to offer hands on learning, curriculum ideas, games, art projects and more. 

This project was made possible with funding provided by, Capital Region Community Foundation.  Environmental Education trunks are available for K-5 and 6-8 educators.  In the future we hope to provide trunks for Early Childhood education and grades 9-12.


It is FREE to rent an Environmental Education trunk from Michigan Arbor Day Alliance.  Please call our office to reserve an Environmental Education trunk for your school or organization.


We are in the process of scheduling workshops for the Environmental Education trunks. Workshops will allow educators the opportunity to view all of the available items and familiarize themselves with classroom application.  If your school or organization would like to host a workshop please contact Jennifer Hunnell at (517) 543-1512 x 114 or  Workshops are expected to be brief lasting no more than 2 hours.
