Support kids in nature: Eat at Chipotle on Dickson Street

The Ozark Natural Science Center, tucked away in the woods outside Huntsville, offers programming in Arkansas's flora, fauna and geography to grade-school children on its trail system and in its teaching facility. If you've been to ONSC — maybe to see the Northern Saw-whet owl, the subject of recent research there by a University of Arkansas ornithologist — you know it's a great place, with a cave system, waterfalls, creeks and Ozark uplands, located on the 500-acre Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission Bear Hollow Natural Area. The programs aren't short hikes: The kids stay in dorms, so the experience is deep enough for them to really learn something.

So what's that got to do with food? Chipotle Mexican Grill, 550 W Dickson St., is going to give 50 percent of its proceeds from meals served between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 28, to ONSC's Scholarship Fund for schools that send their students to ONSC, which serves around 3,000 kids from Northwest Arkansas every year.

Here's what you do to make your meal help a kid get away from the video game and into Arkansas's natural beauty: You download a flyer from this ONSC page on Facebook and give it to the cashier before you pay, OR you can show the cashier your digital flyer OR you can simply tell the cashier that your meal is part of the Cause An Effect fundraiser for ONSC. Earnings must be more than $300 for the restaurant to follow through.

Chipotle says does its part for the environment and healthy food with its commitment to using GMO-free organic produce, supporting local farmers and avoiding added hormones in dairy products. It has minimum space requirements for animals whose meat is purchased.
