The Patagonian Foundation Supports US State Department Grant Funding

The Patagonian Foundation has written to Assistant Secretary of State John F. Turner (Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs) asking him to support a U.S. Forest Service grant request for programs in support of the U.S.- Chile Environmental Cooperation Agreement. A decision is expected by May 10, 2005.

Responding to a State Department request for proposals, the U.S. Forest Service applied for a small grant to support:

1. A second Patagonia Project Volunteer Expedition

2. A training course in trail design, construction and maintenance for Chile’s national park service rangers and local micro-business.

3. Small travel scholarships for up to 10 Chilean national park rangers to work alongside Forest Service rangers at U.S. National Forest locations.

”These projects are excellent examples of environmental cooperation between the US and Chile by building capacity for environmental protection and community economic growth,” said Scott Perryman, President of The Patagonian Foundation. “This grant will support our growing partnership between volunteers, park managers, local communities, non-governmental organizations, universities and business. I hope others will join us in writing to Assistant Secretary Turner.”
