Classroom Field Trip Grant Session for Teachers

September 19, 2018 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
Nature At The Confluence Campus
306 Dickop St
South Beloit, IL 61080

Nature At The Confluence and Welty Environmental Center are teaming up to help teachers get funding to bring their students on a trip for a full day of nature-based, ecology and conservation education.

Four dates are being offered for a free 2-hour grant writing session that will assist teachers in applying for up to $700 Target Stores Field Trip Grant. This grant can fund transportation, admissions and supplies for Spring 2019 field trips for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students.

DETAILS – In a fun and fast two-hour session, we’ll assist teachers in writing a grant that would cover a full day of nature based, ecology and conservation education. Nature at the Confluence in South Beloit will be the field trip location site. During the session we’ll provide information about our organizations including how programming could meet state standards; help with phrasing, brainstorming and other assistance.

“The trip was excellent. What a great educational site and collaboration of programs you have there.  Even the chaperones expressed interest in coming back on their own.  I hope to, too!”  ~ 3rd Grade Teacher
