Two District School Districts Receive Ohio EPA Education | Mini-Scholarships community


Two Wood County school districts receive Ohio EPA Environmental Education mini-scholarships.

Local Eastwood Schools: Eastwood middle and high schools receive $2,060 for eight-grade science classes focused on trout reproduction, adaptations, and natural selection, and what constitutes successful or unsuccessful habitats over time. The high school marine science class monitors and cares for the fish as they grow.

Perrysburg Exempted Village School District: Hull Prairie Intermediate School will receive $1,506 to raise trout from eggs to juveniles and facilitate their release at a site approved by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The focus is on the importance of trout in the biosphere, water quality, pollution and restoration efforts.

Each year, the Ohio Environmental Education Fund awards grants to environmental education projects that serve the kindergarten through college students, the public, and the regulated community. Mini-grants are available for projects costing between $500 and $5,000.

Eligible grant recipients include environmental groups, public and private schools, colleges and universities, trade or professional organizations, corporations, and state and local governments. Letters of intent for the next round of funding are due by July 8th and applications by July 15th. Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact the Ohio Environmental Education Fund online or at 614-644-2873 to discuss project ideas.
