Land Between the Lakes Educational Field Trip Grants Available

 

Land Between the LakesGolden Pond, KY – Are you an educator interested in planning a field trip to experience the Land Between The Lakes (LBL) “outdoor classroom”?  If so, don’t miss out on LBL’s Educational Field Trip Grant for the 2011-2012 school year.  The deadline for the field trip grant application is April 29th, 2011.

LBL’s Educational Field Trip Grant is available to public school districts within 100 miles of LBL. The grant assists schools in covering costs for transportation, facility admission fees, program costs, and dorm rental during the 2011-2012 school year. The grant amount awarded to schools is based on the school’s matching funds, number of students, and LBL programs in which the school participates.

LBL programs are designed to support the Kentucky and Tennessee State K-12 curriculum guidelines for science, social studies, and arts and humanities. “The programs offer students a hands-on experience to connect with nature, the stars, and history,” stated Richard Lomax, LBL Environmental Education Specialist. “An LBL field trip is an excellent opportunity for students to gain an understanding of and appreciation for science and history, as well as the outdoors.  It is an experience that will last a lifetime!”

The grant program is sponsored by USDA Forest Service, “Friends of LBL,” Swift & Staley, Calloway County Homemakers, and the Johnston-Hanson Foundation. For more information about LBL’s Educational Field Trip Grant, visit www.friendsoflbl.org and click on Interpretation or call 270-924-2038.
