Grants of up to $1,000 to Kentucky schools, educators, and students for new and existing programs and activities that focus on environmental and conservation education. Eligible uses of funds include improvements to school grounds such as the establishment of outdoor learning areas, and tree and other permanent plantings. Eligible applicants are located in Campbell County.

Grant funds may be used for a variety of projects and materials including: 
  • Materials to enhance an outdoor learning area
  • Trees, perennial plants, and seeds when directly related to a program of conservation study (native plants preferred)
  • Developing trails and trail guidebooks
  • Conservation-related library materials

Strong consideration will be given to proposals that will use additional materials, labor, or dollars for the project (i.e., donations, volunteer labor, other grants, PTA involvement school funds). Proposals for equipment, speakers, and/or field trips will only be considered if the item is an integral part of a larger strategy.
