2017 WNPS Conservation Grants
The WNPS Conservation Committee is soliciting proposals for Conservation Grants of up to $1500 (typical range $250-$1000). Proposals must further the conservation of Washington native plants and provide public benefit. Projects will restore, improve, or support on-the-ground, functioning native plant ecosystems and must be site appropriate. Total funds available for the 2017 cycle are $2000.
Applications must be received by March 1 and awards will be announced by April 1. Remaining funds may be distributed on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the Conservation Committee.
Grant requests from WNPS members on behalf of WNPS chapters, organizations, or individuals will be considered. Projects must align with the WNPS Conservation Principles.
Proposals will be evaluated based on:
- Support of the WNPS Conservation Principles
- Quantity and quality of ecological benefit to be gained
- Likelihood of long-term project success.
Preference may be given to students and first time recipient team projects, and chapters or organizations with limited financial resources. If possible, grant awards will be distributed geographically across the state.
The grant payment for funded projects will be paid when the project is completed and a final report and all receipts are submitted. The final report will be 300-500 words in length and include photo documentation suitable for publication in Douglasia and on the WNPS website.
