Newport News Public Schools has received an Environmental Education and Stewardship Grant from Dominion Energy in the amount of $5,000 in support of a new Environmental Science course. The grant will provide funding to purchase kayaks, life vests, and paddles for students to participate in a watershed educational experience at the Mariner's Museum's Lake Maury. The grant will also be used to obtain teacher certifications from the American Canoeing Association.
Dominion Energy has awarded $1.6 million in grants through its philanthropic arm, the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation, to 135 organizations working to improve natural spaces or teach about the environment.
This annual program considers grant requests from eligible nonprofits and schools that focus on specific, short-term projects that promise measurable results to improve the environment.
