Holden Fund Grants
Sharyn Magee

WCAS distributed $19,000 in grants to several local and one international organization to carry out education and conservation programs. They were made possible by a generous bequest from Polly Holden. The 2010 Holden grants are as follows:

  • Friends of Hopewell Valley Open Space:  $4,800 to support forest restoration at the Kulak preserve in Hopewell Township.
  • D&R Greenway:  $3,000 to support the proposed propagation greenhouse at St. Michael's to provide a local source of native plants indigenous to the area. This project will support and enhance habitat restoration in our area.
