Grants to Albuquerque, New Mexico public schools for campus beautification and improvement projects, as well as activities that promote student environmental awareness and participation. Projects must be carried out by students and impart upon them personal responsibility for their environment and change their behavior toward littering.
Consider these ideas:
-Litter control devices such as trash/recycling receptacles
-Trees for wind breaks
-Water conserving systems
-Creation of an outdoor classroom
-Service Learning/Life Skills (e.g. Community involvement)
You may want to consider applying some of the ideas from above to one of the following areas:
-School Grounds Entry Way
The use of any item is taken into account before being approved. In the past, the following items have been funded; however the following list is not an all-inclusive list:
-Low Water Usage Plants
-Fabric Weed Block (Filter Fabric)
Your maintenance plan weighs heavily on the decision to fund your project. Your water source is of the utmost importance. Low water use projects are preferred. If your plan includes plants, you must include water conserving irrigation or an alternate water source. Special consideration will be given to xeriscaping plans. If you choose to use xeriscape methods please keep in mind that xeriscaping requires frequent water in the beginning phases. Please present the committee with a reasonable water and maintenance plan. There must be a firm commitment from your group.
