Kinnikinnick Native Plant Society

Focusing on native plants and conservation in North Idaho

Lois Wythe Grant

In 2008 the Kinnikinnick Native Plant Society chose to honor  Lois Wythe,
our founder and the developer of the Native Plant Arboretum in Lakeview
Park, by offering an annual grant that recognizes her contributions as
well as promotes the use and appreciation of native plants.  Since that
time two schools, two individuals, the Panhandle Animal Shelter, and an
informal group of volunteers with a project in mind have received funds.
 
Applications for our grant are due each year by November 30.  Funds are
awarded early in the following year.  Anyone who has questions or needs
more information may contact Janice DeBaun at grant@nativeplantsociety.org. 
 

A downloadable version of the application can be found here.

 


LOIS WYTHE NATIVE PLANT GRANT - 2016

The Kinnikinnick Native Plant Society is offering a grant of up to
$300 for a Bonner County group, class or individual to complete a
project which is designed to  promote the awareness of native plants.

In 2008 the Society chose to honor Lois Wythe, the founder and
developer of the Native Plant Arboretum in Lakeview Park, by offering
an annual grant that recognizes her contributions as well as promotes
the use and appreciation of native plants.  Since that time, two
schools, two individuals, the Panhandle Animal Shelter and an informal
group of volunteers with a project in mind have received funds.  Funds
will be awarded based on originality and the potential effectiveness
of the project.  We encourage applications which think beyond gardens
such as an art project, science/botany focus or educational speaker.
The project must be essentially completed by the end of 2017 at which
time a final report outlining the accomplishments including a plan for
maintaining the project over time must be submitted to the
Kinnikinnick Native Plant Society.

Applications are due by November 30, 2016.  Funds will be awarded
early in 2017.  The application may be viewed/downloaded at
nativeplantsociety.org.  Mail completed application to the
Kinnikinnick Native Plant Society Grant Committee, P.O. Box 1092,
Sandpoint, ID 83864.  For questions or more information contact Janice
