Many thanks to all who submitted applications.  We share your vision of reducing impacts from invasive species, promoting natives, and expanding environmental education opportunities throughout the estuary.  We received more applications than ever before, and it was a very competitive process.  BTNEP looks forward to working with these great organizations to make their projects successful.
