Project Proposals

Project proposals can be submitted for capital improvements, funding assistance, or maintenance support within the Lakeshore Nature Preserve’s 300 acres of natural areas. Proposals may be submitted by faculty, staff, students, student organizations, or community members.

Submitting a form helps us to streamline the budget process, and provide a uniform method of reviewing all proposal recommendations.

Does your project involve teaching, research, or service learning? A separate application process is necessary for activities that support the university’s educational mission within the Lakeshore Nature Preserve. See Apply for a Teaching and Research Permit.

DUE DATE: Proposals will be accepted until November 1 of each year for the upcoming year’s work plan. Proposals not accepted in prior years may be resubmitted for consideration.
