Dear SNC Supporter:
The Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC) compiles information on funding opportunities, workshops, and resources that is applicable to the Sierra. We share it on our Web site and you can view it on our Current Funding Opportunities page, which was updated today. We provide this information solely as a service to Sierra stakeholders; we are not affiliated with nor do we endorse any specific funding sources.
Belinda Lozano, SNC student assistant, prepared our October update. The newly-listed funding sources address the following topic areas:
- Conservation practices for agricultural producers (2)
- Gardening with youth
- Establishing, maintaining, and protecting foot trails
- Advocacy for the permanent protection of intact wildlands
- On-the-ground and citizen-based monitoring projects benefitting National Forests and Grasslands
- Reducing and preventing storm water contamination of rivers, lakes, and streams
New workshops and resources include the following:
· A course on agritourism for farmers and ranchers
· An article about free guides and resources useful in grant proposal development
· A organization that targets high school students with experience-based programs in agriculture and environmental sciences
There are also six previously-listed opportunities that are still current, an updated schedule for additional funding webinars and workshops, and other resources for potential grant applicants.
We update the Current Funding Opportunities page once per month. Please sign up for our Current Funding Opportunities email list if you would like to be sure of receiving these updates, or unsubscribe from the list here. Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding funding opportunities.
