How can we inspire more youth to go outdoors more often?
Next Public Meeting: Thursday, Nov. 3, 6:30 pm
Bella Romero Academy K-3, 614 E 20th St.
Imagine an outdoor education bus, similar to a mobile library, that has nature-based experiences for local youth inside. This is just one idea the Cache la Poudre Inspire Coalition has to improve outdoor and educational experiences for local youth in grades K-12. The problem? The funding for this type of project depends on your ideas and advice.
That’s why we need your help! Please attend our public meeting. We’ll present ideas for connecting our youth to nature and the outdoors and collect your feedback. This is a free event. Childcare for event attendees and refreshments will be provided. For details, call David Sanchez, at 350-9422.
