Riverview Middle School is one of 16 Indiana schools to receive grants from the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation to fund field trips to state parks and reservoirs.
Riverview's sixth-graders will use the grant for a field trip to Salamonie Lake.
The grants pay for transportation costs, program fees and classroom supplies related to preparation or follow-up for the field trips.
The foundation is the supporting non-profit of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. The Discovering the Outdoors Field Trip Grant Program was established in memory of Tom Huck, a long-time DNR employee who was an ardent supporter of outdoor experiences for children.
