A grant was recently awarded to fund a Family Nature Club using the Nature Clubs for Families Toolkit as a resource. The grant will allow the Ward Museum to develop and pilot a new Family Nature Club. If you are interested in learning more about how to use this toolkit in grant writing to fund a FNC or have similar accomplishments and ideas to share, please post your ideas or contact WardEducation@salisbury.edu.

Wow, Kim - that is GREAT news! I've been contemplating applying for grant funds to start a FNC at our local nature center and/or within our local school district. I have everyone's "moral" support, but no one has any funding!!! I'd like to hear more about you used the toolkit for grant writing. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much for sharing this! I will get in touch with you. A little fund will be excellent. We are often limited in our ideas, by the lack of funds for the club. Great news!
Brenda, the funding came from the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore's Community Needs grant. The grant will fund seven outings, including the gear (kayak rental, etc). The first step would be to find a local or regional grant that would fund your effort. I would be happy to share the grant documents with you to aid in your efforts. Best of luck!
