Earthshine Nature Program

Earthshine Nature Program (ENP) was founded in 2010 to provide a unique learning environment and opportunities that foster a lasting interest, respect, love and greater conservation of wildlife, wild places, and the fragile environment that supports us all. We have an exciting outreach program, taking our wildlife conservation and renewable energy messages to local and regional communities via schools, libraries, camps, churches, special events, festivals, and other public and private organizations. ENP with funding from Lake Toxaway Charities has created and maintains a one-of-a-kind nature and science education classroom open to our students throughout the week and to the public by appointment.  ENP also provides a wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and conservation facility for the continued conservation and study of our native wildlife and wild places with our primary focus being on the wildlife of Transylvania County.
