PA Parks & Forests Foundation Offers Young, Seniors Access To Outdoors Scholarships

Thanks to Wilderness Wheels, a new PA Parks and Forest Foundation donor-funded transportation scholarship program that offers students and seniors access to the outdoors.
Students in grades K-12 at a Title I school; youth participating in a community enrichment program such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, the local Y, etc.; and seniors attending programs at their local senior centers are eligible to apply for funding for the cost of transportation to a state park educational program.
Grantees are then able to use Pennsylvania state parks and forests for experiential learning, leadership development, team building, career exploration, or recreation skills development.
Pennsylvania state parks and forests offer an opportunity to explore nature, provide hands-on environmental learning opportunities, develop leadership skills, connect youth and seniors to our rich cultural legacy, and develop recreational skills that can make them healthier.
