Apply by January 30th for the new OISC Education and Outreach Grant!
Meaningful outreach and education is crucial to engage and activate a wide network of people protecting Oregon from invasive species. The Oregon Invasive Species Council (OISC), thanks to $100,000 provided by the Oregon Legislature earlier this year, is now offering grants in the range of $2,000 to $20,000 to support such crucial efforts.
The OISC seeks to fund a diverse range of conventional and innovative projects to build knowledge and awareness, and empower policy makers, communities, interest groups, and members of the public to take actions that help prevent the spread of and control invasive species across the land and waters of the state. The OISC encourages innovation that leverages upon current invasive species educational approaches and messaging and/or new messages and approaches to invasive species education and outreach to reach new audiences.
Learn more about how you can apply for this grant to help protect Oregon’s economy, ecosystems, working landscapes, infrastructure, and natural heritage from invasive species.
Reminder: two upcoming deadlines on December 13!
