Wild Ones Invites Applications for Native Plant Education Projects
Wild Ones, a nonprofit environmental education and advocacy organization, is accepting applications from projects that aim to enhance and develop an appreciation for nature using native plants.
Through the Lorrie Otto Seeds for Education Fund, grants of up to $500 will be awarded to projects that emphasize the involvement of students and volunteers in all phases of their development. Examples of appropriate projects include the establishment of a native plant community in an educational setting such as an outdoor classroom, developing and maintaining an interpretive trail landscaped with native plant communities, and/or developing a wetland area to study the effect of native vegetation on water quality.
Schools, nature centers, and other nonprofit places of learning that focus on educating K-12 students in the United States, including houses of worship, are eligible to apply. Qualified applicants must have a site available for the project.
See the Wild Ones website for complete program guidelines, examples of past projects, and application instructions
DEADLINE: OCTOBER 15, 2016
