Kids in the Park Field Trip Scholarship 

Kids in the Park Scholarship Fund

Getting more students outside

Wehr Nature Center has a longstanding history of providing high-quality, engaging, environmental education experiences for youth from throughout southeast Wisconsin. While we strive to make these programs accessible  for all types of learners, we know that sometimes cost can be a barrier.

Therefore, in partnership with the Friends of Wehr Nature Center, we are thrilled to be able to provide the Kids in the Park scholarship program to allow more students to experience the wonders of nature.

The Kids in the Parks Scholarship provides:

  • A reduction of our field trip fee to $1 per student
  • A bus stipend, based on the level of financial need

Scholarship Qualifications:

  • The school must be within Milwaukee County
  • 50%  or greater of the school's students qualify for reduced or free lunch.
  • Preference is given to schools within 15 miles of Wehr Nature Center
  • Priority is given to schools with existing relationships or a desire for developing ongoing partnerships

Post-Trip Expectations:

  • Completion of a  post-trip teacher survey
  • We welcome student reflections, photos, or any other impact statements
