The Nature Conservancy will be awarding grants to support projects that implement green infrastructure to address local environmental challenges. Grants of $2,000 will be awarded to 60 public or charter schools across the United States. A Nature Works Everywhere project empowers students and teachers to work together to create and implement their own solutions to environmental challenges in their communities. Whether addressing issues surrounding access to healthy food, air quality, urban heat island effect, or stormwater collection, youth are empowered as social innovators to model solutions in their school communities through design and implementation. Applications must be submitted online by 5 PM ET November 3, 2017. Read more.
