Join us for a workshop on 2018 Nature in Neighborhoods nature education and outdoor experiences grants! There is also a workshop being held at 4 p.m. on the same day at the same location.
Does your organization offer young people of color work training in parks and natural areas? Maybe you have a partnership that introduces refugees and new residents to the outdoors in greater Portland? Or do you teach school kids how nature connects to their STEM classes? Do you hope to create a program that improves water quality, restores fish and wildlife habitat, or connects people to nature?
Metro’s Nature in Neighborhood nature education and outdoor experiences grants supports programs like these. With the goal of building cultural, environmental and economic equity, these grants provide communities of color and underserved communities educational opportunities, work training, organizational development and the chance to get out and spend meaningful time in nature.
Join us at this workshop to learn more about Metro nature education and outdoor experiences grants and how to fill out a simple application by March 6, 2018.
