ASNV is pleased to announce that Centreville Elementary School has won this year’s ASNV Conservation Grant. The school plans to revitalize a walking trail and natural vernal pond. The vernal pond suffers from run-off, consequently, salamanders which used to spawn there have disappeared. Students plan to add native plants to improve stream filtration while also attracting native bird and amphibian species.
We are making up to $3,300 available to winning applicants for projects that protect or improve habitat for birds, butterflies, other wildlife and/or native plants in the chapter’s territory. Individuals, non-profit organizations and public schools are eligible to apply. Click here to learn more.
ASNV worked with the Friends of Dyke Marsh to obtain a National Audubon Society grant of $1,903 for native plant restoration at Dyke Marsh Wildlife Preserve. The funds have been transferred from ASNV to the Friends of Dyke Marsh to purchase native plants.
