Two school districts and three local conservation groups will get at total $14,028 in environmental education and stewardship grants through the state Department of Environmental Protection, Gov. Tom Corbett announced.

The money is part of $309,626 to be doled out to 111 agencies statewide. The grants coming to Luzerne County are:

• $3,000 to Hazleton Area School District

• $2,530 to Wilkes-Barre Area School District

•$2,998 to Friends of the Nescopeck

• $3,000 to the Eastern PA Coalition for Abandoned Mine Reclamation

•$2,500 to the North Branch Land Trust.

The money comes courtesy of a 1993 law that requires 5 percent of pollution fines and penalties collected annually by DEP be set aside for environmental education.
