KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Nonprofit groups in Missouri and Kansas have been awarded federal grants to develop environmental education projects.

The Environmental Protection Agency's regional office said the Blue River Watershed Association of Kansas City is receiving about $36,000, while the Missouri Environmental Education Association in Columbia is getting about $31,000.

In Kansas, the Lawrence-based Friends of the Kaw will receive about $30,000 to develop programs educating the public about environment issues. A grant of about $55,000 goes to the Kansas Association for Conservation and Environmental Education to help establish a program for measuring environmental literacy.

The EPA said the grants are among six being awarded to schools, universities and organizations in the agency's four-state region for developing environmental programs aimed at educators and students.
