P.R.A.D. Inc. Accepts Applications for 2018 Grant Awards

Patuxent River Appreciation Days, Inc. is pleased to announce the opening of the 2018 grant round. Non-profit organizations that provide educational programs about the Patuxent River or conduct research activities in and around the Patuxent River or Patuxent River Basin are eligible to apply. Completed applications must be postmarked by April 27, 2018.

For over 40 years PRAD, Inc. has given tens of thousands of dollars to dozens of environmental and non-profit organizations that help to achieve positive stewardship of the Patuxent River and its history. Grant awards in the amount of $1,000, in any one calendar year, are available to non-profit organizations, scouts, school groups, students, parks, and museums, etc.

In 2017, the Patuxent River Keeper was awarded funds to assist with getting a new boat up and running. CHESPAX, part of Calvert County Public Schools, used funds for under-water cameras for SAV experiments. Historic Sotterley Plantation received funds to update and purchase items that will assist students with interactive experiences about daily life of children living on a plantation in the 1700’s.

The awards are made on a competitive basis by the P.R.A.D., Inc. Board, which includes members of the Calvert Marine Museum, the Pa-Po-Peake Shrine Club, The Calvert Artists Guild, The American Legion Arick L. Lore Post, and the Calvert County Waterman’s Association. Patuxent River Appreciation Days is sponsored by the Calvert County Commissioners. Their assistance make it possible for these educational and environmental grants.
