When I was at Oregon State U. we did trans -state field trips studying geology etc.; but fuel was alot cheaper back then<
. Tthese younger kids need free overday or over night outing. Here in Oregon I am trying suggest fun things kids & Parent or Teachers can do close to home.

Working with project Go opens the outdoor world to children who otherwise might never experience it first hand. In less then two years Winona community kids have enjoyed
Ice fishing, snow shoeing, Digital photography in nature, Invertebrate study, Not to mention learning about prairies and river habitats. I look forward to the next outing with the children and Project Go. Thank you Sara.

I believe our partnership with Project GO is one of the best examples of mentoring youth in outdoor activity we participate in on the Refuge. Imagine if all 500 plus refuges had a partnership with a group like Project GO! It works so well because of our limited staff but unlimited areas to connect children with nature! Rock on Sarah!
