2014 ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION GRANT PROGRAM

 

Every school year, during the spring semester, Environmental Education Grants are made available to classroom teachers in the DOAS area (Delaware, Otsego, eastern Chenango, and western Schoharie Counties). in 2014, this competitive grant program is also available for Home School Programs as well as Student Service Organizations.  These grants enable educators in our region to add new environmental and conservation focused activities to their curriculum.  The number of awards and grant amounts are determined based on funds available and the number of qualifying proposals received.  Previous grants have funded projects such as an environmental field day; construction of a weather station; backyard birds and animal habitats study kits; and pond studies.

 

The deadline for submission for a 2014 DOAS EE Grant is Friday, February 28, 2014. For more about Grant guidelines, applications or to donate to the DOAS EE Grant Fund, please visit the Education section of the DOAS web site, www.doas.us, or contact Susan O’Handley, sjohandley@gmail.com.
