Loon Echo Land Trust Awards Environmental Education Grants

Loon Echo Land Trust is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2015 Environmental Educational Grant Program. Loon Echo has awarded small grants to the Naples Public Library, Bridgton Public Library and Spaulding Memorial Library, as well as the Sebago and Harrison elementary schools.

Every year, schools and libraries in Loon Echo’s service area of Denmark, Bridgton, Harrison, Naples, Casco, Raymond and Sebago are invited to submit grant applications to Loon Echo for environmental programs. These awards will help Lake Region children learn about the environment and the importance of protecting our region’s land and natural resources.

This year the schools and libraries are using their grants for programs including wildlife, natural history and water resources. The students will come away with a better understanding of their natural world while having fun through the learning process.
