Streamkeepers Announces 2019 Grant

The Clinton Streamkeepers (a 501(c) 3 organization) is pleased to offer grant funds available from our Sture Fredrik Anliot Fund. This fund is “an endowed, restricted gift for the improvement of water quality in the Little Miami River and its tributaries in Clinton and Greene Counties of Ohio.”

Dr. Sture Fredrik “Fred” Anliot was a Professor of Biology at Wilmington College where he taught for 35 years.  Fred was well-liked and highly respected by those who knew him, including colleagues and students.  He studied the watershed extensively, authoring articles and the book “The Vascular Flora of Glen Helen, Clifton Gorge and John Bryan State Park”.  Fred lived simply and was frugal with his money, he passed on December 14, 2012 and his generosity is the basis of this grant funding.

The grant funding is available for various amounts for projects related to water quality including, but not limited to: stream cleanups, monitoring, buffer strips, wetland restorations and other habitat work. Organizations who may receive the grant can include, but are not limited to, civic groups, environmental organizations, nonprofits, schools or educational institutions, and watershed groups.

The grant application is due April 1, 2019, with grants being awarded around April 15, 2019. More information, including the application for download can be found by clicking HERE.
