Mammoth Cave National Park receives $10,000 grant

The National Park Foundation is awarding Mammoth Cave National Park a $10,000 grant to be used on field trips.

The funding will go toward an environmental education program which will bring ten local schools to the park and will send National Park staff into schools in the McCracken and Pike County school systems.

The field trip and in-classroom learning activities focus on educating students on geology, biology and how good environmental stewardship can positively affect the world around them. 

Last school year, staff worked with over 57,000 students.
