PLANNING YOUR TRIP
Take a minute now to get your ducks in a row, so that when you get to Long Lake all you'll have to do is enjoy watching all the ducks in a row (and deer, eagles, loons, otters...)
Long Lake Conservation Center still has spots available for the 2022-23 school year AND LCCMR scholarship money available - up to 90% off. We would LOVE to offer your school a portion of these dollars so that your students can connect with the outdoors during an immersive, interactive, hands-in-the-dirt Nature Field Trip. Dates and scholarship dollars are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you're interested in learning more, please contact us:
The size of the scholarship your school can receive is dependent on your school demographics; specifically, the number of students who receive Free and Reduced Price Lunch. Long Lake is able to offer full scholarships to students who receive Free or Reduced Lunch, but the total amount of scholarships offered must not exceed 90% of the total school field trip fees. To apply for a scholarship, contact Long Lake, or complete this SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION and email it to email@example.com.
ABOUT LCCMR GRANTS
Scholarship dollars are provided by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR). The Trust Fund is a permanent fund constitutionally established by the citizens of Minnesota to assist in the protection, conservation, preservation, and enhancement of the state’s air, water, land, fish, wildlife, and other natural resources. Currently 40% of net Minnesota State Lottery proceeds are dedicated to growing the Trust Fund and ensuring future benefits for Minnesota’s environment and natural resources. The goal of these scholarships is to allow a minimum of 20,000 students in underserved communities to attend one of Minnesota's six RELCs.
