Deadlines are approaching in early December for two terrific grant opportunities from Save the Redwoods League.

Redwood Connect Grants

Redwood Connect Grants are designed to foster equitable access to parks, meaningful and community-driven connections with nature, and a deeper understanding of the many different attributes and benefits of the redwood forest. We are seeking applications from nonprofit organizations (including public agencies and schools). The deadline for applications in Dec. 3.

Redwood Research Starter Grants

Redwood Research Starter Grants are intended to provide introductory opportunities for members of underrepresented communities to explore ideas in the redwood research space, or potentially enhance the work of those who are already working in this space. Grants of up to $5,000 are available for undergraduate and graduate students of color interested in research in coast redwood and giant sequoia forests. The deadline for applications is Dec. 1.
