Outdoor Foundation offers grants for bus rides to national parks
The Outdoor Foundation is offering grants to pay for bus transportation to national parks and federally managed lands and waters, an effort to encourage fourth-grade teachers to take their students to the great outdoors.
President Obama this year launched the Every Kid in a Park initiative, which gives fourth-graders and their families an opportunity to visit a national park for free.
In partnership with the White House’s initiative, the Outdoor Foundation is committed to giving out $250,000 in small grants to pay for bus transportation to a park or federally managed land.
Schools or nonprofit partners can register at www.crowdrise.com/EveryKidinaPark. Registration opened Tuesday (December 15). See flyer for more information.
