Maine Audubon, Maine TREE Foundation, the Appalachian Mountain Club (on behalf of the Maine Outdoor Coalition) and Schoodic Education and Research Center all have received $5,000 grants from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The four Maine projects are designed to contribute to increasing the environmental knowledge and skills of students, teachers and families in the state.

The EPA awarded a total of 19 grants in six states. Nearly 100 proposals were submitted to the New England Environmental Education Alliance, in partnership with the Maine Environmental Education Association, for review, covering educational programs that focus on learning about the environment.
