The Outdoor Classroom Grant Program is to promote awareness and ownership of our natural resources in primary and secondary schools within the Little Blue NRD area (all of Thayer, parts of Adams, Clay, Fillmore, Nuckolls, Jefferson, and Webster counties).
The Little Blue NRD will provide technical and planning assistance if needed and has free tree stock available until April of each year.
TThe program offers schools, FFA, and 4-H groups the opportunity to develop an outdoor classroom.
Monies totaling no more than two hundred dollars ($200) can be requested by teachers for the purpose of acquiring materials needed for conducting Environmental Educational exercises and construction projects on school grounds.
The District will also make available free seedlings, grass drills, grass, and other possible materials.
