Our nation’s public lands are places where we picnic, play ball, fish, fly kites, pull weeds and plant seeds. Our public lands should be safe places of natural beauty where everyone can go to lend a hand, observe nature and enjoy life. With generous support from Toyota Motor Sales USA, Inc., NEEF is offering Every Day Event Grants to public land organizations, or Friends Groups, to engage their community on a public land site.
2013 marked the first year NEEF awarded Friends Groups up to $2,000 each to hold a minimum of three events. Organizations were awarded funding to host events that are educational, recreational and/orvolunteer-based stewardship projects. By increasing the number of visitors who have good experiences on public lands, Friends Groups are the spark that continues to engage communities on our treasured lands.
NEEF would like to help spread the word for these events on public lands. Therefore, applicants who received an Every Day Event Grant will register their events on our Public Lands Every Day Events calendar.
