This FREE event, entitled ArCH: Arts, Culture and Heritage – Preservation Field Days, is a cooperative endeavor of the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, Delaware State Parks; Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, State Historic Preservation Office; National Park Service and numerous other conservation organizations and agencies. The field day is offered in the spirit of enhancing, celebrating and culminating students’ awareness and appreciation of Delaware’s arts, culture and heritage resources. It will also serve to celebrate the ongoing efforts of our communities and citizens to recognize and promote historic preservation. This field day will provide hands-on activities for fourth grade students, centered on preservation. We are designing activities with the 4th grade Next Generation Science and Delaware Social Studies and Visual Arts units in mind. Pre-visit and post-visit activities will be developed and provided to all classes that attend the event.

This project has earned the “Every Kid in a Park” Transportation Grant that will be used to defray the cost of busses to attend the event. As part of the National Park Foundation’s Open OutDoors for Kids program, the “Every Kid in a Park” transportation grants seek to remove barriers to accessing our nation’s public lands and waters, with a special focus on underserved and urban communities. The purpose of the grant is to provide students that would not otherwise be able to visit a National Park the opportunity to visit and expand on in classroom learning with out of classroom activities. Due to grant parameters, priority will be given to Title 1 school applications.
