Education Foundation Grants Available
The BCHA Education Foundation directors are pleased to announce the availability of three $ 1,000.00 grants and two $ 500.00 grants to BCH chapters for equipment, materials and supplies for trail or trailhead building, maintenance and/or repair. These grants are a result of a DEW Foundation donation. Projects are encouraged which involve partnerships with public land agencies and other trail or youth groups. The grant application should include the trail or trails and type of activity planned. Photos of the project before, during and after are required along with a news article suitable for publishing in the BCHA National Newsletter and for the DEW Foundation and other media outlets. The Ron Arrington memorial donation has funded two $ 500.00 grants for youth education projects. These projects could include 4-H, FFA, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts or other youth groups and be oriented to education about saddle and pack stock and the wise and sustaining use of our backcountry resource. We would ask that applications be submitted by May 15, 2014 in order that the grants can be awarded June 1, 2014.
