Environmental Education Grant

The Pike County Conservation District Board of Directors are again offering a $500 Environmental Education Project grant for Pike County teacher/classrooms or youth organizations to fund projects that complement the mission of the District:

Pike County Conservation District is committed to the long-term protection and sustainable use of Pike County’s natural resources. We accomplish this through partnership, education, technical assistance, planning, enforcement, and leadership.

Since 2005, this program has reached over 3,500 students and awarded $11,500 to all three School Districts in Pike County for a variety of projects.

These projects have included a native plant hydroponics system, a composting program, natural pest control research, several native plant gardens, and more!

 

The 2024 application is now open! Please complete the application below and submit to PCCD via email or mail by May 1, 2024.
