Through a partnership with Rosie the Riveter National Historical Park, the Outdoor Foundation granted Groundwork Richmond a $20,000 grant to provide outdoor opportunities and education to our Green Team youth. Not only will they participate in activities such as service-learning activities in places like Yellowstone National Park, where this summer four of our youth will help build trails and other projects, but fun activities including kayaking.
Rosie the Riveter's park rangers provide learning opportunities for our youth, teaching them about the rich history surrounding our local national parks. This grant will provide for staffing, outdoor activities and educational materials for our Green Team. Our first activity under this grant was a kayaking trip to Aquatic Park to visit and tour the San Francisco Maritime National Historical park led by a park ranger on the SF Bay.
