REMINDER: Submit proposals *NOW* for the Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition’s Community Conservation Grant and Environmental Education Grant programs. Both deadlines are January 17, 2018.
The Community Conservation Grant Program is designed to challenge U.P. communities to promote conservation values within their watershed or local area. In the past, short-sighted actions by corporate or individual landowners often degraded the U.P. landscape. Today state and federal environmental regulations as well as the private conservancy movement work to protect natural areas for public benefit and to safeguard significant populations of wildlife, and the ecosystem processes which support them. The Community Conservation Grants initiative focuses on communities that want to step up the protection of conservation values in their locality.
The Upper Peninsula Environmental Coalition also reminds educators of their annual Environmental Education Grant Program.
