Grants ranging from $100 to $500 to USA schools, nonprofit places of learning, churches, and nature centers for projects that promote an appreciation of nature by using or developing natural landscapes and native plants. Funding is intended to support outdoor learning areas that engage children - preschool to high school - who will participate directly in the planning, planting, and care of the native plant gardens. Grant funds will cover the costs of native plants and seeds.
Project goals should focus on developing an awareness for nature by growing native plants in a garden or landscape. Projects must be hands-on, emphasize involvement by students and volunteers in most phases of development, and increase the site's educational value. The design must show complete and thoughtful planning. Use of, and teaching about, native plants and the native plant community is mandatory. The native plants selected, must be appropriate to the applicant’s local EcoRegion and site conditions (soil, water, sunlight). To determine your EcoRegion use Level III or IV here: https://www.epa.gov/eco-research/ecoregions
Examples of appropriate projects:
SFE projects must have a designated and sustainable site. The grant project should be developed locally with community volunteer support. The Project Coordinator needs to be both knowledgeable and directly involved in project implementation.
