Grant Writing Workshop to be Held April 16th

A grant writing and climate change workshop is being held on Saturday, April 16th, to teach the ‘ins and outs’ of writing grants and receiving free money. The workshop is free and will be presented by Kathy Rusert. Patrons will leave the workshop with a grant ready to be submitted and with the resources to use to find, apply and get money to fund your projects.  It is being combined with a training exercise on the new PLT module teaching about Climate Change. The workshop will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end around 3:00 p.m. at Cossatot River State Park and has been approved by ADE for PD credit.
Join Cossatot River State Park interpreters Rusert for this special topic workshop that supports the new K-12 Arkansas Science Standards.  The climate change workshop will feature PLT’s newest module called Southeastern Forest and Climate Change.  This is for K-12 educators and the activities from this new module will help students understand climate change, the carbon cycle, forest health, forest management strategies, and how consumers can make a difference through purchasing choices.  Activities contain teacher background information and instructions, student handouts, extension and assessment ideas, and additional resources.

Please bring a sack lunch and any snacks you may want for the workshop. Reservations are required and space is limited.  Call 870-385-2201 to register.  Any questions contact shelley.flanary@arkansas.gov or call 870-385-2201.
