Environmental Education Projects
Posted by Project Learning Tree on July 20, 2015
Project Learning Tree advances environmental literacy and promotes stewardship through excellence in environmental education, professional development, and curriculum resources that use trees and forests as windows on the world.
To that end, PLT is accepting applications from schools and nonprofit organizations for environmental service-learning projects through its GreenWorks! grants program. The program is designed to help students make their schools more green and healthy, for example by implementing recycling programs, conserving water and energy, improving air quality, or establishing school gardens and outdoor classrooms and integrating these projects into the curriculum.
Grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded to support environmental service-learning projects that demonstrate service-learning, exemplify the collective voice of the student body, and involve at least one community partner. To be eligible, projects must secure at least 50 percent in matching funds (in-kind is acceptable).
The GreenWorks! program is open to any PLT-trained educator from any of the fifty states and the District of Columbia.
Visit the PLT website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, and application instructions.
DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 30, 2015
