Lowcountry 2019-2020 Grant Opportunities

The Lowcountry Chapter is pleased to offer two opportunities for grant funding during the 2019-2020 program year.  For the first time, we will be dividing project types into school projects (up to $500 maximum award) and community projects (up to $1,000 maximum award).  Please review the criteria below and contact Mary Conley with any questions or submissions.

Green Drinks with SCNPS!

Presenters: Sharleen Johnson, Kim Morganello, Jeff Jackson

Free and open to the public.  Food and drink will be available for purchase.  Please RSVP on our Eventbrite link below so we can get a head count!  A 20-minute presentation will begin at 6:15 pm, with networking, info table, and door prizes before and after.  Join us as we share information about South Carolina’s delightful diversity of native plants and help more people appreciate the vital role native plant species play in the health and sustainability of our natural ecosystems.  Charleston Green Drinks meets the 3rd week of the month at various locations, with a different environmental organization hosting each month.
