Green Neighbourhood Small Grants Recipients Announced!

Over the past four years, our “general” Neighbourhood Small Grants (NSG) initiative has generated amazing responses among the communities of the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Region. We noticed that many of the projects that community members proposed were environmentally oriented. This spring, we launched Green NSG, a new version of the program designed to support grassroots environmental projects that contributed to green initiatives while bringing neighbours and community members together! Check out the list of Green NSG projects below, and make sure you head to the CBT NSG Facebook Page for updates about the projects as they begin to happen this spring!
