The Pike County Conservation District Board of Directors has established 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 natural resources conservation through leadership, education, technical assistance, planning and enforcement to ensure the long term protection and sustainable use of Pike County’s natural resources and implementation of environmentally sound development and land use practices.

Since 2005, this program has reached over 2,500 students and awarded over $7,500 to all three School Districts in Pike County for a variety of projects. These projects included the The Overuse of Plastic Bags, three habitat rehabilitation projects, a nature trail sign installation, a Trout in the Classroom Project, the Seven Wonders of Pike County Project, and Lehman Intermediate Outdoor Learning Station.

Funding is now available for 2017! Projects can include but are not limited to: the use of audio, visual or other media to address a local environmental issues or concerns, habitat rehabilitation, native plant garden and land use planning demonstration models. The District encourages stewardship efforts to protect and preserve Pike County’s natural resources. Download a copy of the grant application that you can duplicate and distribute.
