Enhancing opportunities for youth education about the wonders of the natural world of the Mississippi Valley Watershed is a key MVFN goal.
Two programs, our Environmental Education Program and the MVFN Young Naturalists program, help us achieve this goal.
Environmental Education Program (EEP)
EEP provides financial support for in-school and other environmental education projects limited by school budget cutbacks, but where qualified educators are available.
We invite applications from teachers and youth group leaders seeking financial assistance for projects related to education about our natural world- for children of all ages in Carleton Place, Mississippi Mills, Lanark Highlands, Beckwith and surrounding area. The sort of projects which may be funded could include, but are not necessarily limited to, field trips to study stream ecology, visits to schools by qualified educators, year-long eco-school initiatives, and attendance at local or international environmental workshops or conferences.
MVFN’s EEP program coordinator is MVFN Board EEP Chairperson Bob Smith. For further information, please contact Bob at firstname.lastname@example.org or 613-624-5307.
