(Jackson, Wyo.) - 1% for the Tetons is now accepting grant applications for conservation focused projects in the Tetons regions. According to the organization, grants typically fall into one of five categories: eco-friendly communities, environmental education, river systems, trails, and wildlife. Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. MDT on Friday, July 15. "The ideal 1% grants provide seed money that allows for an innovative idea or project to become a reality. We love to see fresh, interesting approaches to problems that help sustain our region's natural resources and related qualities. We do not fund ongoing operations or capital campaigns," said 1% for the Tetons in an email. The grant application is available through the 1% for the Tetons website
