Do you have an idea for a lesson plan or activity involving water resources? The watershed district is offering mini grants to help cover the cost of the materials and support your ideas. Grant awards range from $50 to $400 and are available to teachers and informal educators. Applications are accepted throughout the year until funds run out.
There are no dealines. Apply at any time. School year applications accepted while funds last.
