The Douglas County Community Foundation will conduct a workshop for community members interested in applying for funding from the Elizabeth Schultz Environmental Fund.
The session will be at 4 p.m. Wednesday in the Gallery Room at the Lawrence Public Library. Funding guidelines will be discussed and foundation representatives will answer questions.
Guidelines also are available at www.dccfoundation.org.
Elizabeth Schultz, a retired Kansas University English professor, established the fund in 2005 to support local efforts to preserve and understand nature. Projects may address the fund's goals in scientific, cultural, educational, aesthetic or economic ways.
The fund will provide up to $20,000 in grants this year. The deadline for applications is Oct. 1.
