Victorian ECEC services encouraged to apply for Landcare grants
Victorian early childhood services, primary and secondary schools and selected community groups are now invited to apply for a grant of up to $5,000 to fund hands-on, on-ground projects, and environmental learning activities for children and young people.
Offered by Landcare Australia and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning the 2021 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants put forward a total of $450,000 for environmental learning activities that provide both environmental and educational outcomes, as well as health and social benefits.
The grants also contribute to the targets of Protecting Victoria’s Environment – Biodiversity 2037, the Victorian Government’s plan to stop the decline of native plants and animals and improve the State’s natural environment.
Project focus areas include improving biodiversity through the development, improvement or restoration of habitat for Victoria’s native plants and animals and/or educating, involving and engaging young people in valuing and actively caring for Victoria’s natural environment.
