Georgia DNR offers grant for top conservation teacher

 
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources is offering a $1,000 grant to a third-, fourth- or fifth-grade public or private school teacher in the state who demonstrates exceptional energy and innovation in teaching life sciences. Science specialists covering those grade levels also may apply.
 
The “Conservation Teacher of the Year” grant is coordinated by the Wildlife Conservation Section of DNR’s Wildlife Resources Division. Funding is possible thanks to support from the Section’s friends group, The Environmental Resources Network (TERN). 
 
Through education, research and management, Wildlife Conservation works to safeguard Georgia’s native diversity of wild animals, plants and their habitats, while also striving to increase public enjoyment of the outdoors. The purpose of the grant is to recognize and help an outstanding teacher who uses Georgia’s native wildlife, plants and habitats as the context for learning, according to Linda May, DNR environmental outreach coordinator.  
 
The deadline to apply is September 17. DNR will notify the grant winner by October 5.
