Educational Mini-Grants for Conservation and Restoration Projects

Call for Conservation Mini Educational Grants
The next deadline is September 15, 2012
The Montana Department of Natural Resources & Conservation (DNRC) offers grants up to $500 to fund conservation and restoration activities for K-12 students and adults. 

To be considered for a grant, a school teacher or program manager must submit a written application directly to the local conservation district, and depending on the conservation district requirements, an individual may be required to attend a meeting to explain the project. If the conservation district agrees to sponsor the grant application, it will be forwarded to the DNRC. 

An online directory of Montana Conservation Districts will help your organization locate the conservation district office in your area.  If you have questions, contact Linda Brander,  (406) 444-0520.
