WASHINGTON, Cascadia CD – Nearly $200,000 in wildfire education grant money has been given to Wenatchee’s Wildfire Project and Cascadia Conservation District. The $194,000 grant was awarded through the department of Commerce. Senator Brad Hawkins of East Wenatchee initiated a budget proviso “to promote education about wildfires to public school students of all ages, and to expand community outreach.”

The Cascadia Conservation District was also awarded a No Child Left Inside grant in the amount of $25,000 from the state to support various projects.

“These funds will serve thousands of students in North Central Washington over the next two years. Hands-on outdoor education programs like this connect our students to the natural world as well as local professionals and experts in natural resource management. Through these programs we hope to inspire the next generation to appreciate and care for their local and global environment,” said Amanda Newell, Education & Outreach Specialist for Cascadia Conservation District.

The Cascadia Conservation District is a non-regulatory entity established to provide landowners with technical and financial assistance with natural resource projects in all of Chelan County.
