The program aims to promote environmental education, community involvement and stewardship to improve the quality of Sarasota Bay and its tributaries.

Applications must be received by 4 p.m. Friday, March 1, at Sarasota Bay Estuary Program offices, 111 S. Orange Ave., Sarasota, and can also be emailed to Sara Kane at [email protected].

Organizations can receive grants of up to $3,000.

Last year’s recipients included Mote Marine Laboratory, which received $2,000 to partially fund an educational signage project and Sarasota Bay Watch, which received $2,000 to partially fund its Sister Keys and Skiers Island cleanups.

SBEP has awarded $213,000 in grants to more than 90 organizations since 2002.
