Connecting the community to the outdoors and developing a new generation of conservation stewards are the twin goals of a new grants program recently announced by the Cherry Hills Land Preserve. This program encourages community and youth engagement to promote greater learning and appreciation of our natural environment and conservation issues through schools, local non-profits, and volunteer organizations.
Applications are now open. Typical grants may include a request for a tree planting project, habitat and wildlife research, trail signage, trail clean-up, or other conservation education opportunities. Grant awards range from $500 to $5000. Student groups, STEM classes and student clubs, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, 4-H, and HOAs are encouraged to apply.
