Do you remember how much fun the “field trip” was when you were in school? Do you recall that is was even more fun if the trip was to a natural space like a park? Do you have a large group or a special topic? Did you know that this experience is not available to many youth today? Every year thousands of school students, seniors and people with challenges are not able to visit our regional parks. Why? Because there is no funding to charter a bus.
The Bus Grant Program was launched in 2017 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Metro Vancouver Regional Parks. This program connects children, youth organizations, community centres, senior’s groups, and organizations that support people with disabilities or who experience other barriers to experiencing nature.
In 2018 we formed a partnership with YVR and as a result, we are now able to connect even more groups to regional parks.
