"Ride to the Refuge Grant" Funds School Transportation!

The Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge offers high quality field trips with hands on experiences for students. In order to help students get to the Refuge, the Friends of Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge have established a funding source to provide transportation dollars for the 2016-17 school year. The Friends will provide up to $350 for transportation for a single trip for schools in the Elk Grove Unified School District with a maximum of two field trips per school per year

The first step for teachers is to contact Amy Hopperstad, Park Ranger at the Refuge, to arrange the date/time of the Refuge site visit. After the date and time are set, the application can be completed and submitted by email to the Friends at info@friendsofstonelakes.org or through the mail at Friends of Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, c/o Jeanne Cunningham, 3732 Red Eagle Ct., Antelope, CA 95843.

The teacher will receive an email from the Friends of SLNWR with further instructions if the grant is accepted. If submitting an application on-line please indicate “Ride to the Refuge Grant” in the subject line.

Applications can be accessed through any of the following:
