Illinois Rain Garden & Schoolyard Habitat Grant

Two grant programs available to Illinois residents that have deadlines of November 30, 2009.

The first is the Rain Garden Initiative.

If you're a teacher or youth group leader who wants to engage kids by teaching them about wildlife habitat, see the Illinois Schoolyard Habitat Action Grant Program.

Another opportunity for teachers (includes home-schooling teachers) who want to teach kids about nature is the Illinois Biodiversity Field Trip Grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources through the Environment and Natural Training Institute for Conservation Education. The deadline for this grant is January 31 2009.
