One of the biggest challenges schools and organizations face when taking kids on educational field trips is reasonably priced transportation. Westcave Outdoor Discovery Center, a 75-acre open space notable for its collapsed grotto, is launching the Roadrunner Outdoor Adventure Bus Program to eliminate that roadblock so more children can experience the outdoors in Central Texas.
The goal is to raise $20,000 to fund the bus, as an innovative new program that will help schools and other organizations connect kids with nature. The program, a first for the Austin area, is a scalable way to overcome budget and transportation barriers faced by schools trying to incorporate environmental education into their learning programs.
