2018 American Penstemon Society Grants

The American Penstemon Society is seeking proposals for their 2018 Grants program.

The purpose of the APS Special Projects Program is to stimulate activities that promote knowledge and appreciation of Penstemons. The Society is particularly interested in funding projects that:
1) Promote conservation of Penstemon species in the wild, especially rare or sensitive ones, through understanding of factors that affect their survival, or
2) Promote appreciation for the diversity and beauty of Penstemons in wild and domestic landscapes, through horticultural research, dissemination of information of interest to gardeners, or the construction or enhancement of educational display gardens.

Submit proposals to Dorothy Tuthill via email (dtuthill@uwyo.edu) or mail no later than March 15, 2018.
