3M Eco Grants environment feature

A new grant program was established in 2012 to improve science-based environmental and conservation education for youth (preschool – grade 12) in a nature center or environmental learning center in or near a 3M community.

With a commitment of $400,000, nine grants were awarded from Delaware to Washington with a grant range of $30,000 - $50,000. Many included partnerships with schools to get kids outdoors to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math including a watershed stewardship program and an immersion program at a nature center.
