The Water Resources Education Network (WREN) has funding available to help launch community partnerships that raise awareness and educate citizens about ways to keep Pennsylvania water resources clean and healthy. As a WREN project leader, you can make a difference to assure that families will have clean water for generations to come through nature protection and sustainable development. WREN projects help residents and community leaders work together to take action that will reduce risk and prevent pollution of the aquifers, lakes, rivers, streams, springs, and the places we fish, swim and enjoy.
 
Go to http://www.waterwisepa.org/our-projects to see terrific projects we've already funded to get creative ideas. No need to re-invent the wheel.
 
For 2014, WREN offers two separate funding tracks: Watershed Protection Education track (awards up to $5,000) and the Source Water Protection Collaborative track (awards of up to $7,000). WREN is a project of the League of Women Voters of PA Citizen Education Fund.
