2022 Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants
Applications are now open for the fifth year of the Victorian Junior Landcare and Biodiversity Grants, funded by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
All schools, kindergartens, childcare centres, Scouts, Girl Guides, youth and Junior Landcare groups in Victoria are eligible to apply for grants of up to $5,000, and applications close on Tuesday 9 August 2022.
These grants will fund projects that focus on Victoria’s biodiversity and involve and educate young people in valuing and actively caring for Victoria’s biodiversity and natural environment.
Projects can be either on-ground, hands-on projects, or environmental learning or educational activities.
You could plant an indigenous garden to create habitat for native birds and insects, and even work in collaboration with your local Landcare group to plan and deliver your project.
You could organise a biodiversity focused excursion or incursion, or take part in a citizen science program like Waterwatch.
You might want to do a combination of both.
If you have any questions about the grants program, you can check out the summary of the guidelines and criteria here.
Schools (primary or secondary), preschools, kindergartens, childcare centres, Scouts, Girl Guides, youth groups, and Junior Landcare groups in Victoria.
