Sponsored Field Trips

Sponsored Field Trips

We believe that providing students with first-hand experiences will enhance their connection to our natural environment.  NEW this upcoming school year (2019-2020), we are sponsoring select experiences that immerse 3rd-12th students in the topics of waste reduction, litter prevention, and natural resource conservation. Our field trips are also an excellent way to expose students to new subjects and career paths. 

KCB will cover the cost of transportation (one bus) and program fees, no-reimbursement necessary! Spaces are limited and sponsorships will fill up fast!
