Riverview receives grant from state foundation for field trips to parks

Riverview Middle School is one of 16 Indiana schools to receive grants from the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation to fund field trips to state parks and reservoirs.

Riverview's sixth-graders will use the grant for a field trip to Salamonie Lake.

The grants pay for transportation costs, program fees and classroom supplies related to preparation or follow-up for the field trips.

The foundation is the supporting non-profit of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. The Discovering the Outdoors Field Trip Grant Program was established in memory of Tom Huck, a long-time DNR employee who was an ardent supporter of outdoor experiences for children.
