Overview of Outdoor Idea

:

In January of 2008, we started a free nature club for families in the Roanoke Valley. We invite families to join us in the local parks and trails for a morning of fun an adventure. Our idea is to encourage families to learn Leave No Trace principles by taking families on overnight hikes.

The Specifics: What will the $5,000 fund?

$5,000 would provide us the means to purchase sets of camping supplies and needed items for families who may not have these items, which has been the thing that has held many families back from being able to join us in the past. We would create a check out system for families who want to borrow them for our overnight hikes, as well as when they try overnight hikes on their own. This money would also purchase a set of LNT teaching materials for the outings. These purchases would allow us to encourage families to become stewards of the natural lands around them.

Thanks so much! Really very simple. It takes some of the frustration out for the family who is not quite sure if what gear works best for them.
