Environmental Field Trip

A microproject by Neuse River Foundation INC

Summary

We will provide a field trip for a classroom in Raleigh, North Carolina to the Walnut Creek Wetland Center. Field trip funding has been greatly reduced for North Carolina Public Schools. This program will provide a group of low income students a chance they otherwise may not have. Learning about water resources in a text book is great but learning through your own senses and experiences can be life changing.

Challenge

Budget cuts in public schools have reduced or eliminated funding for field trips, including admissions support for low-income students and buses needed for transportation. While we can not fix the budget problem for North Carolina schools we can provide a classroom a field trip and more importantly an experience that they would not have without this program.

Solution

Through this program we will get 25 students hands on learning to supplement what they are learning about in the classroom.

Long-Term Impact

We strive to create the next generation of environmental stewards that will protect safe, clean water, and a love for our natural resources which are the building blocks in the foundation of vibrant local economies and healthy communities. Our vision is to foster communities where students, teachers, parents, administrators, and community members realize that engagement in real environmental problem solving is an essential component of both education and community involvement.
