Outdoor Classroom Grants

The Utah Division of Forestry, Fire & State Lands, in cooperation with the US Forest Service and the Utah Community Forest Council, welcomes public and private schools (K-12) to apply for the Outdoor Classroom Grant.

The intent of the Outdoor Classroom Grant is to provide funds to K-12 schools to implement an outdoor learning environment on their school grounds. Educators should be able to tie in existing curriculum, such as art, social studies, environmental education, and science, providing an outdoor setting to enhance learning opportunities. This will allow the students to connect with the world around them and engage in hands-on activities and experiences.

All applications must be signed off by a Division of Forestry, Fire, and State Lands Forester prior to submission to the Urban & Community Forestry Coordinator. The deadline to get the Area Forester’s signature is July 26, 2021. Grant applications will be accepted through August 2, 2021. See the grant guidelines below for more details.
