The Education Committee encourages educators throughout our state to develop projects about native plants and plant habitats for their classes. Teachers who have been granted awards can serve as mentors for other teachers hoping to do similar projects in their school districts. Education grants are also available for projects linked to gardens, museums, parks and other public displays of or about native plants.
Grants for WNPS members, funded by WNPS member contributions, are available for education projects that further the goals of the Society. Please contact committee chair Fayla Schwartz if you have any questions.
Education proposals are reviewed by the Education Committee twice annually. Deadlines for submission are May 15 and November 15 each year.
