NEWS: SCHOOL BUS FUNDING AVAILABLE

 

The Friends of Heinz Refuge (FOHR) are excited to announce that we have created a new Field Trip Busing Grant Program through which area teachers and schools may request funding assistance to cover some or all of the busing costs associated with student field trips. Beginning with the commencement of the school year 2014-2015, we invite area teachers to download the the application. After the form has been completed, including all the required signatures, it can be submitted to us either by mail: PO Box 333, Folcroft, PA 19032-0333 (Attention Education Committee), or through our website email Ė info@friendsofheinzrefuge.org. Please note that part of the application process requires teachers to contact the refuge Erika_scarborough@fws.gov for additional instructions and to reserve their trip date. FOHRís education committee will meet monthly and will review then, with notice of grant approvals being sent immediately after approval.
