On September 21st the Arizona Community Foundation of Flagstaff hosted its Annual Grant Awards Ceremony at High Country Conference Center. The room was packed with Flagstaff’s amazing non-profits, Community Foundation staff, and program and grant partners. One-by-one grants were awarded in each category, from K-12 Education to Social Services and Health.
The funds will go towards our new “Urban Trails and Community Connections: Linking Flagstaff through Schools, Trails, and the Rio de Flag”. The project provides 200 elementary and middle-school students with over 220 hours of environmental education programming. Classroom presentations, field experiences, and service-learning projects will engage students and teachers with local ecosystems found along the Rio de Flag and Flagstaff Urban Trail System.
