Hello All,
We are looking for Districts or Agencies across the State that might have information to share about programs that offer field trips/experiential learning to connect their students with Local History.
It is our goal to create a sustainable (funded) series of experiences that would increase awareness and ultimately, develop students' desire to promote and preserve the rich heritage of Niagara Falls and Western New York.
We are aware that the NYS Parks offer transportation grants, but are open to any other ideas or suggestions for structure, programming, or sustainability. It will be interesting to see what others are doing, so we can tailor our own program to meet our situation and needs.
I can be reached directly via email at [log in to unmask] or via the contact information below, rather than overload the listserv.
Thanks in advance for your time and consideration.
