Students Access the Outdoors through NHEE’d To Get Outside Grants

The New Hampshire Environmental Educators awarded over $30,000 in NHEE’d to Get Outside grants to 23 schools and organizations for 2024. Schools and nonprofits receive this funding to help their students access the outdoors whether it is for admission and transportation for field trips to nature spaces, snowshoes for winter exploration or science tools for outdoor learning.

NHEE’d to Get Outside Grants were awarded throughout the state. “We are so happy as an organization to be able to support this grant program as funding for access is one of the greatest barriers to getting students outside” explains Judy Silverberg, a NHEE Board member. This program has been in place since 2018 and has grown in its ability to provide funding to what it is today. Last year over 1,600 students benefited from grants ranging from $200 to $2000. Each project awarded directly supports New Hampshire students learning outdoors.

“THANK YOU!  WHOOOOO!!! This is awesome, thanks so much for this opportunity to grow our Environmental Science program here at Hollis Primary School!  So very, very exciting!” was one NHEE’d to Get Outside grant recipient’s response when they found out they were granted funding.

The NHEE’d to Get Outside Grants are supported by members of the New Hampshire Environmental Educators, an anonymous Maine foundation, community donations, and other grants and awards received by New Hampshire Environmental Educators. Currently, the organization is halfway to raising funds to meet a $10,000 challenge by May 31, 2024.
