Grant for Teaching Conservation to 3rd-5th Graders

The Nongame Conservation Section of Georgia DNR's Wildlife Resources Division offers a $1,000 grant to a third-, fourth- or fifth-grade teacher who demonstrates exceptional energy and innovation in teaching life sciences. Project proposals must include Georgia's nongame wildlife (animals not fished for or hunted and rare plants not harvested) as the context for learning curriculum standards. One teacher is selected based on project design and how well the grant proposal questions are answered. 

Guidelines for the 2015 grant are available for review as a Word Document.  The deadline to apply is September 18, 2015, and the winner will be notified in early October.  (Read the news release about the 2014 recipient, William Eswine of Savannah Country Day School.) 

Funding is made available by The Environmental Resources Network. TERN is the friends group of the Nongame Conservation Section. Grant details are also available at
