"Look deep, deep, deep into nature and then you will understand everything"
Friends of Trees is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the physical aspects of Chatham by planting and maintaining trees and through grants to local non-profits that share our mission. Friends of Trees also endeavors to educate the public to the important role trees play in Chatham's environment.
Friends of Trees is sponsoring its second Educational Grant Program
The purpose of the program is to support teachers and non-profit organizations interested in undertaking educational efforts related to the science and value of trees. Grants will be awarded for projects that promote education, research and public awareness of the value of trees; promote sound ecological horticultural practices; or other project consistent with Friends of Trees’ mission.
Friends of Trees grant funds may be used for teacher training and student education; transportation in the case of field trips; speaker honorarium; and materials related to the educational purpose of the grant program. Projects that directly benefit the Town of Chatham community will receive preference, with priority given to programs benefitting students of the Monomoy elementary and middle schools including the Lighthouse Charter School.
The Guidelines and Application are now available for projects to be completed by June 30, 2017. Please click here to download the pdf.
