Grants for Redwood Forests Education

From The Foundation Center...

Save-the-Redwoods League Accepting Education Grant Applications

Deadline: June 30, 2008

The Save-the-Redwoods League ( http://www.savetheredwoods.org/ ) has announced the availability of education grant funds to schools, park cooperating associations, and other qualified nonprofits engaged in quality redwood education.

Since 2000, Save-the-Redwoods League has awarded more than a hundred and fifty grants to dedicated educators who provide high-quality redwood forest education both in and out of the classroom. The grant program seeks to foster a deeper understanding of redwood forests through personal visits and educational experiences among a broad, diverse audience. The program funds projects that provide engaging, firsthand experiences of redwood forests for children and/or adults using traditional and non-traditional approaches. The league is particularly interested in projects that are created, designed, and implemented by K-12 students and use current or emerging technologies to make the redwood forest even more accessible to today's youth. Grant awards typically range from $500 to $3,000 each; exceptional projects may be awarded up to $5,000.
