The Alliance for Water Efficiency (AWE) is happy to announce the launch of its Learning Landscapes Grant Program for the 2021–2022 school year. AWE offers this grant program to support building or improving educational outdoor spaces that allow school-age children to experience hands-on, applied learning about landscape water use. Eligible projects include outdoor landscapes at schools, on public/government property, at botanical gardens, and other community locations as appropriate.
The application period is open until July 30, 2021. AWE will award five grants in the amount of $5,000.
Those interested can request the Learning Landscapes Grant application packet. Grant awardees are required to use at least one of the three AWE Learning Landscapes Lessons. A fourth lesson will be released this summer and can be used to meet this requirement.
The AWE Learning Landscapes school lessons focus on outdoor water efficiency and align with Next Generation Science Standards for grades 3–8.
The lessons are publicly available and can be requested here.
AWE Learning Landscapes Grants and Lessons were made possible by generous funding provided by The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation.
