Receive Funding to Bring Your Students to the Park!
National Park Foundation - America's Best Idea Grant
"Diversifying History - Bringing New Connections to an Old Park"
This year Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park received an America's Best Idea Grant from the National Park Foundation. One of the benefits associated with this grant is transportation funding for schools to visit THEIR local national park.
Any Title I school can apply for bus transportation funds. However, students visiting the park using these funds must participate in a ranger-guided program (chosen on the above reservation forms).
The Friends of Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park will provide critical assistance in ensuring schools will receive these integral funds, allowing them to bring their students to participate in these special programs. Without the Friends' assistance, the park would not have the ability to reach so many schools.
Once the form is complete, please scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 706-866-7981.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call Park Ranger Chris Young at 423-752-5213 x117.
