An anonymous donor has issued a challenge grant in the name of the late Marilyn Kloosterman, a longtime volunteer and member of the “Ding” Darling Wildlife Society Board of Directors. The grant will match dollar-for-dollar any donation made in her memory, up to the amount of hours she donated to the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge during her 34 years of service, which amounts to $8,545. The gifts in her memory will go to establish a permanently endowed Marilyn Kloosterman Education Fund to support conservation education at the refuge. To donate, call 239-472-1100 ext. 4 or visit www.dingdarlingsociety.org/donation and note that the donation is in memory of Marilyn Kloosterman.
