Baltimore is getting some federal funding for environmental education programs. Rep. John Sarbanes announced Wednesday that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will provide $120,000 to give high school students immersive environmental education opportunities. The Parks & People Foundation and the Living Classrooms Foundation will each receive $60,000 to strengthen environmental learning programs in the city. Both organizations are Baltimore-based nonprofits. Funding for the Parks & People Foundation will support a new program for Baltimore high school students to explore and design green spaces.
