The Environmental Stewardship Grants Program launched in 2017 and was operated by the Trust for two years.

This exciting initiative provided $80,000 in grant money to support local St. Margaret’s Bay community groups for projects that enhanced trail access, trail safety and preservation, and engaged youth in environmental appreciation.

The grant money was provided by funds the Trust received as a partner of the Bay Treasure Chest.

In 2019, the Trust decided to suspend the Program and allocate the money instead to protecting more wilderness lands through land acquisition or supporting others to acquire and protect it.
