Olympic Nature Experience staff and representatives are looking to the community bolster its efforts to provide safe outdoor classroom spaces for local youths.
An $8,000 grant through state sources and the Clallam County Economic Development Council this month will help broaden access to Olympic Nature Experience programs. In addition to the grant, Olympic Nature Experience is asking the community to help during their 50 Days of Fall Sharing campaign to raise an additional $8,000 to support getting twice as many children outside and offer 50 percent more tuition assistance in 2021.
“Today more than ever before our local community needs our services to help get more children outside and unplugged,” said Sarah Salazar-Tipton, Olympic Nature Experience’s executive director.
Those wishing to support Olympic Nature Experience’s 50 Days of Fall Sharing campaign with a donation may visit Olympic Nature Experience’s website at www.olympicnatureexperience.org/donate. Donations will be matched by donors through the end of December.
Suggested donations of $100 or more made between Nov. 30-Dec. 6 have an opportunity to RSVP to Olympic Nature Experience’s Tea with a Teacher Event that includes a visit to their hidden gem classroom, virtually or in a small socially distanced group with lead teachers from Olympic Nature Experience.
