This bill would establish the Outdoor Equity Grants Program to increase the ability of underserved and at-risk communities to participate in outdoor environmental educational experiences at state parks and other public lands. Priority funding would be given to outdoor environmental education programs that primarily provide outreach to and serve students who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals, foster youth, or pupils of limited English proficiency. 

It is all of our roles to grow the next generation of stewards that see themselves as owners and stewards of the outdoors. To do this, we need to increase every opportunity and remove barriers so that all of Californians have pathways to parks. This bill would increase exposure to the outdoors and state parks, while engaging outdoor meaningful experiences that make an impact on youth.
