Access to Transportation Helps Taos Kids Connect to the Environment

  • Local Champion: Rivers and Birds Inc.
  • Date Funded: September 1, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $9,000

Local nonprofit Rivers & Birds has helped connect thousands of kids in Taos to the environment through hands-on environmental learning adventures. Those adventures are important, but they are unfortunately out of reach for kids who do not have access to safe and free transportation. To address this problem, Rivers & Birds hoped to supplement their offerings to third and fifth-grade students in the 2023-2024 school year. With help from the LOR Foundation, the organization will provide 10 school bus trips for five classes of third graders and 20 school bus trips for local fifth graders. The students will learn Leave-No-Trace principles, basic wilderness training, and hike throughout public land. Older students will even conduct field investigations and and learn about riparian ecology.
