$10 Donation to Provide an Educational Field Trip
The Issue: Lack of Hands-On Learning Opportunities
Hands-on learning and outdoor opportunities can be vital components of a young student’s education—particularly in science, where concepts can be difficult to grasp without concrete evidence. Many Washington schools, however, operate on a limited budget, making it difficult to incorporate field trips into the curriculum.
During the 2011–2012 school year, The Lands Council arranged more than 30 field trips for schools in the Spokane area and North Idaho. This year, the organization estimates that it will lead a total of 32 field trips, in addition to offering in-class lessons, as part of an effort to provide area students with science education that schools could not afford otherwise.
The Campaign: Providing a Field Trip for Local Students
If 30 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then The Lands Council can provide an educational field trip to a local school as part of Project SUSTAIN. The cost of one field trip includes transportation, materials, and curriculum. These environmental field trips may include hands-on learning activities such as tours of local beaver dams to study ecology and ecosystems; snowshoe hiking to Mount Spokane; and geology hikes through Riverside State Park. Each additional $300 raised will provide another educational field trip to area students.
100% of donations go directly to The Lands Council. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign.
