Community grants available
The South Nation Conservation Authority (SNC) is accepting applications for its 2018 Community Environmental Grants Program. Any community non-profit community group with an environmental or recreational project planned in the South Nation River watershed region is eligible to apply for a grant of up to $300 to assist with their project. Grants categories include: river, heritage, agri-environmental, and community outreach. So far the SNC has approved 20 grants, totaling $6000 for such projects as the Boisés Est Wood Fair, the Russell Historical Society’s Heritage Festival, the Crysler Citizens Committee Fun Run, and the Russell KinClub’s annual Poutmaster Fishing Derby. The SNC also has environmental aid grants available for landowners under its Clean Water Program.
