Funding Assistance for Overnight School Trips
Eagle Bluff may be able to provide qualifying schools with up to 65% off their overnight school trip. The size of the discount is dependent on the number of students who qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch. Dates and discounts are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To inquire about funding assistance for an overnight school trip please click here.
Discounts are provided by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR). The Trust Fund is a permanent fund constitutionally established by the citizens of Minnesota to assist in the protection, conservation, preservation, and enhancement of the state’s air, water, land, fish, wildlife, and other natural resources. Currently 40% of net Minnesota State Lottery proceeds are dedicated to growing the Trust Fund and ensuring future benefits for Minnesota’s environment and natural resources. The goal of these discounts is to allow a minimum of 20,000 students in underserved communities to attend one of Minnesota’s five residential environmental learning centers, including Eagle Bluff.
