Kentucky Ag Connection - 09/14/2017

Students from nine more Kentucky schools are taking field trips to a Kentucky State Park this fall thanks to a transportation grant from the Kentucky State Parks Foundation.

The KSPF's "Inside Out Education" initiative allows schools to seek the grants that enable students to learn about the environment, history or culture at a Kentucky State Park. The recent round of grants brings the total number of students served to 3,919 with 56 grants awarded.

"We're very proud that more students are having the opportunity to experience the outdoors at a Kentucky State Park with the help of these grants," Parks Commissioner Donnie Holland said. "These students will get to see history and the environment up close."

The nine schools and parks they plan to visit are:

- Beechgrove Elementary, Kenton County, Big Bone Lick State Historic Site

- Madison County High School, Madison County, Carter Caves State Resort Park

- Daniel Boone Elementary, Madison County, Waveland State Historic Site

- Frayser Elementary, Jefferson County, Old Fort Harrod State Park

- Owensboro Middle School, Owensboro, John James Audubon State Park

- Muhlenberg County High School, Muhlenberg County, Pennyrile Forest State Resort Park

- Muhlenberg County High School Muhlenberg County, Jefferson Davis State Historic Site

- Longest Elementary School, Muhlenberg County, John James Audubon State Park

- Longest Elementary School, Muhlenberg County, Wickliffe Mounds State Historic Site

The Muhlenberg County school trips are made possible by a grant from the Felix E. Martin Jr. Foundation. For 2018 spring/summer consideration, applications are due March 1.
