The Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM) is Maine’s leading nonprofit membership organization protecting our land, air, waters, and wildlife. We are located in Augusta, but our work reaches statewide. Our mission is to protect, restore, and conserve Maine’s environment, now and for future generations. We use science, public outreach, and citizen engagement activities to restore Maine’s watersheds; protect Maine’s forestlands; increase clean and efficient energy; and promote sustainability initiatives such as composting and recycling.
For the third year in a row, NRCM is pleased to extend a grant opportunity to middle school teachers and club leaders (6th, 7th, or 8th grades) in Maine.
This year, we have eight $500 grants available for projects that educate and engage students in Maine’s environment and the value of protecting it. You can see examples of past grant awardee projects on the program’s blog.
Please contact Gabrielle Grunkemeyer at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about this program. Deadline for grant applications is November 30, 2017.
NRCM is currently hiring a paid part-time intern to help with this initiative.
