Los Angeles Audubon’s Nature Exploration Program at Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area is connecting the next generation of students to parks through an enriching nature and science experience for middle school students from local under-served communities.
“Thanks to generous funding from the California State Parks Foundation, we will offer a bus scholarship program for schools that are unable to provide their own transportation. The program has become a must-do experience for area schools connecting more than 1,200 urban students to hands-on learning each year. In addition, we’ll provide specialized training for college students who serve as docents, park advocates, and role models for the younger students as they gain an understanding of and appreciation for the natural world.”
