Please distribute broadly within the University community...
The Lakes, Vegetation and Landscaping Committee and Student Government
are pleased to announce a mini-grant program for the University's main
campus Conservation Areas. These grants are available to students
groups, faculty and departments to provide restoration and enhancement
projects in the campus Conservation Areas that comprise over 400 acres
of the University's significant forests, wetlands and water bodies.
This grant will be administered by a subcommittee of the Lakes,
Vegetation and Landscaping Committee that will award grants up to
$20,000 for projects that benefit the University's Conservation Areas.
The total amount of funding available is $200,000. The subcommittee will
begin reviewing and awarding the mini-grants starting after March 1,
2007; however, the grant cycle will remain open until all funds are
allocated. For complete information and a grant application, please
