The host agency for NJ Earth Education projects is the Educational Information Resource Center (EIRC), a New Jersey public agency with a 46 year history of providing educational programs and services in New Jersey. EIRC was created by the State of New Jersey as a Local Education Association (LEA) to support education throughout New Jersey. EIRC programs have been used in every school district in the State, as well as other states and foreign countries. EIRC/Earth Education programs and services are delivered through an array of collaborations with local, state, and national agencies.
EIRC provides office space, storage and meeting facilities as well as website, print, mail, and fiscal management for NJ Earth Education programs. Brian Hayes, an EIRC staff member, is responsible for the Dodge Foundation grant. He has worked closely with Erik Mollenhauer for the past seven years. The two of them have created a variety of educational projects, assemblies, trips, and events for New Jersey teachers.
