Marissa Jacobs (The Art of Ecology) is an Environmental & Conservation educator. By blending the arts and sciences, she creates a deeper understanding of and connection to the earth. She has a B.S. in Conservation & Wildlife Management and uses her ecology background to develop environmental stewards. Even if she doesn’t do much nitty gritty conservation work, she can empower and enable others to!
The Art of Ecology strives to set an example. A portion of all art proceeds benefits conservation efforts by environmental groups (in the United States). Previously, it was a dollar to this group or two dollars to that group. This adds up, but isn’t as impactful as it could be. In 2021, The Art of Ecology allocated these funds into a Conservation Mini-Grant for people to make the world a greener place in a meaningful way.
Anyone with an idea for a wildlife, plant, or ecosystem conservation project that impacts local or regional spaces (based out of the United States) is invited to apply! Priority will be given to those located in Pennsylvania (where The Art of Ecology is based out of). Applicants in the United States are encouraged to apply.
