Loon Echo Land Trust accepting applications for Environmental Education Grants

Schools and libraries in Loon Echo Land Trust (LELT)’s seven-town service area (Denmark, Bridgton, Harrison, Naples, Casco, Raymond and Sebago) are invited to apply for one of LELT’s Environmental Education Grants. The purpose of this grant program is to help our future leaders learn more about the natural world.

LELT is accepting applications for the grants now through January 15, 2019. Applications may be downloaded from or picked up at the LELT office, 8 Depot St, Suite 4 in Bridgton and returned by email or mail by the January deadline. Grant recipients will be notified by mid-February of 2020.

LELT’s education endowment was started in 1998 as a memorial to two local teachers, Helen Allen and Polly Bartlett. After her death at the age of 94, Helen Allen’s bequest to Loon Echo allowed LELT to create a fund to support yearly programs in local schools and libraries. 2019 Grant recipients include Spaulding Memorial Library, Raymond Village Library, Bridgton Public Library, Naples Public Library, and Sebago Elementary School.

Loon Echo Land Trust (LELT) is a member supported, non-profit land trust that works to protect the natural resources of the northern Sebago Lake region for future generations. Loon Echo conserves 7,000 acres of land and manages 31 miles of hiking and biking trails in the towns of Bridgton, Casco, Denmark, Harrison, Naples, Raymond and Sebago.
