Remember your favorite school field trip? The memories and education gained on field trips is irreplaceable. Unfortunately, for many schools, class field trips are being eliminated due to reduced bus transportation budgets.
In response to this current trend, Cleveland Metroparks has established a field trip transportation fund program through the Emerald Necklace Endowment Fund.
Contributions to the �Field Trip Transportation Fund� support bus expenses for students to attend free school programs at outdoor education facilities within Cleveland Metroparks. During the 2012-2013 school year, more than 3000 students are anticipated to participate in approximately 120 class field trips.
Schools in Cuyahoga County and Hinckley Township may apply for a reimbursement voucher of $150 from the Field Trip Transportation Fund to support the costs of using buses from their school district to attend one field trip per class per year. In most cases, this provides funding for about 50 children to participate in one of Cleveland Metroparks award-winning programs.
Gifts can be made to support student transportation now and in the future. Visit clevelandmetroparks.com and select the online giving option, or print the Field Trip Transportation Fund form and return it to the address provided. The field trip transportation fund may also be supported perpetuity through a will bequest to Cleveland Metroparks Emerald Necklace Endowment Fund.
