    Starting this year we are taking our love for all things environmental and asking you - or your organization - to tell us why you feel you'd make a great fit for our grant program. We are offering two $3,500 environmental grants per year – one each in the spring and fall – to an individual or group currently pursuing a program or initiative designed to benefit our environment.

    Some examples of this would be:

    • Trail building or restoration projects
    • Park beautification events
    • Litter prevention initiatives
    • Earth Study missions
    • Sustainable Land Management activities
    • Community environmental educational projects
    • Youth educational engagement events

    Interested individuals or groups should submit a 1000-1600 word essay to that paints a picture of who you or your organization are, what drives and inspires you or your organization, what you or the organization are looking to accomplish, and how you plan to apply our grant to your project.

    Please submit your essay as a PDF (preferred) or Microsoft Word document to be eligible for consideration.
