The Environmental Stewardship Tour was partially funded by a grant from the Dominion Higher Educational Partnership Program. Sources of some support for signs were the Pure Water Forum and the Environmental Protection Agency's Section 117 Chesapeake Bay Implementation Grant at the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), via contract number 15984.  

In 2021, new tour signs were funded with a gift to the ISNW for environmental stewardship from Scott Electric.

The tour was developed in collaboration with:

Facilities Management: Abram Kaufman, Michael Dalmolin, and Bradley Andrick
Students: Nicholas Barrett, Christopher Katalinas, and Brooke Covington
College of Integrated Science and Engineering: Robert Brent, Carole Nash, Amy Goodall, and Elise Barrella
Institute for Stewardship of the Natural World: Amanda Bodle and Kay Forshey
Creative Services: Joshua See
Integrated Science and Technology Department Laboratory Operations: Chrissy Rothgeb
Information Technology: Alvin Chao, Dale Hulvey, and Linda Carrier
Public Safety: Lee Eshelman
The Student Success Center: Ritter Clevenger
Office of Sponsored Programs: Tamara Hatch
Virginia Department of Environmental Quality: Nesha McRae

We are currently seeking support for our next project, which was inspired by the Environmental Stewardship Tour, and includes an educational walking path and informal STEM learning experience for students in 6th-12th grade. Below is a preliminary concept.
