Would your neighborhood benefit from some nature? Maybe a trail, or an area to help keep little critters safe? You might be in luck, because there is a Nature in the City program that is looking for ideas.

that would make a positive difference for nature in your neighborhood! Funding and planning support is available for local projects; examples might include pollinator gardens, wildlife habitat restoration efforts, construction of trails to better connect a neighborhood to nearby nature, or other ideas. Projects don’t have to be big to be impactful -- small, creative, and unique projects are encouraged to apply. Unlike a typical grant-funding program, Nature in the City wants to partner with you in your neighborhood to make the greatest impact. There is over $50,000 available for on-the-ground projects across the community for 2017. For more information and to submit your project, go to http://www.fcgov.com/natureinthecity. Applications are due Friday, November 18.
