Reference my earlier post on Funding Opportunities in Environmental Education, and specifically the para related to the 2018 EE Local Grant Program. The USEPA has issued several amendments to this grant program, the most critical of which are,
- the due date is extended to April 11, 2018, and
- you can propose a topic different from the topics listed as the Administrator’s Environmental Priorities which is related specifically to environmental issues relevant to your community

Volunteer for National Public Lands Day
National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands. Held every year on the last Saturday of September, National Public Lands Day brings together hundreds of thousands of individual, student and organizational volunteers to help maintain and restore America’s treasured places.
Public lands are managed by public agencies but belong to and are enjoyed by everyone. These special places provide us with outdoor recreation, education and relaxation; volunteering is a way for the public to give something back. The beauty and importance of public lands inspire us all, and we hope to see you outdoors for this year’s National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 30.
Whether it’s volunteering for National Public Lands Day or throughout the year, check out some of the many ways to help support your public lands.
