Grants

Youth Education Mini-grants

ASNV has awarded three $500 Youth Education mini-grants to help applicants connect youth to birds. Blue Ridge Middle School in western Loudoun County will use the funds to expand the native plant garden in its outdoor classroom and to conduct citizen science to determine whether more native birds are attracted as a result.

Hog Island Scholarship Winners

Thanks to a very successful Annual Appeal Fundraising campaign this year, ASNV was able to award two scholarships to Audubon's "Educators Week" at Hog Island in Maine this summer. Arlington Public Schools autism specialist Deborah Hammer and Prince William County Public Schools science teacher Amanda Hoeschler will deepen their knowledge of environmental education and citizen science
