The Kern Environmental Education Program engages fifth and sixth grade Kern County students each year at coastal campuses with science environmental education in the implementation of Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards. Funds will support tuition for underserved low-income rural students the opportunity to play, learn, and explore the outdoors.

"Camp KEEP is so grateful that CSPF supports the mission of the Kern Environmental Education Program. Every year we teach thousands of children and adults science and environmental literacy using the beautiful natural setting of State Parks along California’s Central Coast. These unique living laboratories allow visitors to engage in hands-on learning activities and foster a closer connection with the earth. Whether climbing a mountain, listening to birds sing under an oak tree, holding a hermit crab, or watching the sun set over the ocean, Camp KEEP students have life-changing experiences in our State Parks."
