Grants of up to $500 to the Upper Peninsula, Michigan K-12 educators in public or private schools, groups, and institutions for projects related to environmental education. Funding is intended to establish programs offering quality environmental programming and to support existing programs. Proposals that would provide hands-on experiences for young people in outdoor settings are also welcome.

Funding may be used for all program expenses except salaries, such as transportation, meals, supplies, and honoraria.

A special grant – the Bonnie Miljour Grant – will fund at least one grant, among those funded, that advocates for the environment through the arts, which will be broadly interpreted to include art, dance or music.
