Media Release: Funding Available for Access to Outdoor Education

For Immediate Release: Monday, January 16, 2017

The Hamilton Conservation Authority (HCA) and Hamilton Conservation Foundation are pleased to offer the 2017 Access to Outdoor Education Transportation Grant for At Risk and Inner City schools participating in the HCA’s Outdoor Environmental Education Programs.

The Access to Outdoor Education Transportation Grant is an initiative of the Hamilton Conservation Foundation and is supported in part by the Edith Turner Fund at the Hamilton Community Foundation. The focus of this grant is to provide free transportation to those schools that face economic challenges and provide an opportunity for less fortunate students to connect to nature and the outdoors through active, hands-on, learning experiences.

This grant is available to eligible Elementary & Secondary schools in the Hamilton area that participate in the HCA’s Outdoor Environmental Education Programs.

We are proud of our on-going partnership with Hamilton area school boards and are delighted to offer this transportation grant for schools that otherwise may not have been able to afford the cost of bussing.

Applications are now available at www.conservationhamilton.ca for interested schools. Limited spaces are available and schools will be considered on a first come, first served basis.
