Grants of up to $30,000 to Yukon nonprofit organizations for programs to strengthen the connection of the community to the Territory's natural environment. Eligible uses of funding include public lectures, awareness campaigns, educational camps and workshops, outreach booths and events, and educational materials including brochures, web content, and videos.
