Knox third grade students will get to go to Potato Creek State Park thanks to the Discovering the Outdoors Field Trip grant.
The grant program is administered through the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation and allows students to participate in field trips to parks and reservoirs to engage them in learning about Indiana’s fish, forest, wildlife, natural habitats and conservation. The grant money helps with transportation costs, program fees and classroom supplies for the field trips to local state parks. Indiana has 24 state parks and eight reservoirs eligible for field trip funding.
More than 1,500 K-12 students will benefit from the grant program this school year. The program expects to distribute $5,125 through 23 grants. All valid applicants will receive funds this year.
Potato Creek State Park will see 140 Knox third grade students with adult supervisors this school year.
