Beginning with the 2003-2004 school year, the Audubon Society of Central Maryland has offered cash School Garden Grants to schools and other organizations in our area. These grants have helped primary and secondary school students to develop native plant and wildlife gardens and habitats at their schools and other locations. This annual program has been very well-received, benefiting all involved in creating and maintaining these gardens.

WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THE SY 2015-2016 PROGRAM!

Primary and secondary schools and nature centers located anywhere in Carroll, Frederick or Howard counties, or in the northern Montgomery County ZIP Codes that are within the ASCM field of membership are eligible to apply for one of the two $500.00 grants funded this year.
