Education

Crane Mountain Environmental Education Program

Be a part of the exciting programs offered at Crane Mountain! Through active learning, students and teachers can discover the fascinating world of recycling, composting, and landfill solid waste management. All programs are designed with curriculum guidelines to enrich your class’s experience. On-site resources include dynamic staff ready to work with a variety of interests and grade levels, as well as indoor exhibits, visual aids, technology, and outdoor demonstrations.

To book a trip to the Crane Mountain Landfill you should call Brenda MacCallum, Public Information Officer, Regional Landfill at 738-1214.

Bussing

Classes in Grade 4 from the entire Fundy Region schools are eligible for transportation funding to participate in the Crane Mountain Environmental Education Program. Have the school book any required buses through the School Board - they will know how to contact the landfill regarding reimbursement. CMEI contributes funding for all Grade 4 classes from  schools in the Host Community through the CMEI “Bus Account.”

Host Community School and Scholarship Funding

The primary mandate of CMEI is to monitor all aspects of the landfill for the benefit of residents of the host community. Over the years our monitoring efforts have evolved and become more expensive such that our cash reserves are diminishing each year. Our Board of Directors has moved to discontinue funding of environmental grants for schools and the scholarship program, effective December 31, 2014, in order to advance our environmental monitoring effort.

School Environmental Grants

The schools located in the host community Westfield Elementary School, River Valley Middle School, Grand Bay Primary School, Inglewood School, and Morna Heights School are eligible to apply for Special Projects grants from the Host Community Enhancement Fund and are encouraged to apply for funding of environmental projects as part of that program. These grants are not limited to $600.00 and will be awarded based on the criteria set out for Special Projects.

Scholarships

Over the past 17 years CMEI has funded, either from our operating budget or through Special Projects, $67000 in scholarships to students from the host community who were enrolled in full time  programs at UNBSJ or NBCC Saint John.  See a list of all recipients below.
