From Awareness to Responsible Action
The Florida WILD Action Grant Program is a habitat
improvement program that provides small cash awards to Florida
public and private schools that are serious about implementing,
maintaining and using a schoolyard habitat as an outdoor classroom.
The purpose of the program is to encourage schools to create or
enhance habitat that will benefit Florida's wildlife and that will
be used on a regular basis for instruction to teach students about
wildlife and conservation of natural resources as part of the
school's regular curriculum.
This program will be used for projects during the
current school year. Projects will be considered for which the main
faculty member(s) responsible has (have) completed: (1) either a
Project WILD or an Aquatic WILD workshop and (2) both a Schoolyard
Wildlife Activities and a Schoolyard Ecosystems workshop provided
by personnel trained in the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) K-12 programs.
If you have met the above qualifications and wish
to apply for the next cycle of grants, contact the Project WILD Coordinator.
