Another Successful Year in the Books!
With some continuing challenges, including limited hours for bus drivers for some districts, an instructor shortage, and cancellations, we provided field trips over seven weeks, bringing students outdoors to learn about their local watersheds. Thanks to funding from the Jackson Soil & Water Conservation District, Central Point Rotary Club, and contributions from the water quality programs of local cities (Jacksonville, Ashland, Phoenix, Talent, Medford, Central Point, and Grants Pass) and counties (Jackson and Josephine), as well as fourteen additional partner organizations, we were able to provide no-cost field trips to students in grades 3rd-8th from nine school districts and five private/charter schools in the Rogue Basin. Collaboration and partnership make it happen!
