Field Trips Boost Student Learning
That’s the feedback we receive from teachers whose students are lucky enough to go on field trips to Florida State Parks. The Parks offer excellent environmental education programs that allow children to have hands-on science based learning experiences in the environments and habitats they are studying about in class. But, too often school districts don’t have the funding to get them there.
Our Yellow Buses in the Parks Project funds field trip bus transportation costs allowing thousands of children to attend these programs. It also purchases equipment and materials, such as microscopes, dip nets, and paper to record test results and observations to make the learning experience as interesting and educational as possible.
Your memberships and donations makes this good work possible. Thank you!
