How to Apply

Calling All Schools!

Please consider becoming involved with the Sustainable Schoolyard Partnership. It is an opportunity to bring students outside for environmental education by revitalizing the school landscape. After all, the outdoors makes a great classroom, and nature makes a great teacher!

Schools interested in becoming partners that fulfill eligibility requirements can review the application and information documents, then complete the Sustainable Schoolyard Partnership Application (below) and submit it electronically to Lacey Westerby of the Conservation Education Program at

We're Flexible

This program is designed to be adaptable so that schools can easily participate in a way that works for them.  If portions of this initiative do not jive with how your school operates, please contact us and we will try to accommodate your needs.
