The North Carolina Outdoor Heritage Advisory Council is pleased to announce the creation of the North Carolina Schools Go Outside (GO) Grant to help address the main barrier to getting kids outside during the school day – funding. Field trips and outdoor experiences offer students opportunities to explore and learn in hands-on environments. With limited dollars available from our local school systems, such engaging and active styles of learning are becoming things of the past.
GO Grants are $250 to $2,500 grants that will be provided to access field study locations and assist with other expenditures that result from taking students outdoors. Qualifying for grants require instructors demonstrate how the experience will address topics currently being taught in class and that the experience meets the goals of the Outdoor Heritage Trust Fund plan. The program also allows staff at field study sites to apply on behalf of teachers with their permission. Grants can range from $250 to $2,500.
The GO Grants will be awarded by the North Carolina Outdoor Heritage Trust Fund for Youth Outdoor Heritage Promotion which is administered by the North Carolina Outdoor Heritage Advisory Council. The Outdoor Heritage Advisory Council and Trust Fund were established in 2015 by the North Carolina General Assembly in an effort to expand the opportunities for persons age 16 and under to engage in outdoor recreational activities.
Every student in North Carolina should have the opportunity to go explore the great outdoors. To help students, please consider making a contribution to the North Carolina Outdoor Heritage Trust Fund.

The Outer Banks Lighthouse Society Grant
The Outer Banks Lighthouse Society’s mission is lighthouse preservation and education. The group formed in 1994, primarily to work for funds to restore the Bodie Island Lighthouse. Because of other events that happened with lighthouses in NC, the involvement in addressing and advocating those needs was spread.
About ten years ago, a Lighthouse Travel Grant was created to aid children in visiting the lighthouses in NC. Countless fourth graders and scout troops have been sent to many of our lighthouses. The grant is for $1000 and we award four each year. The grant applications are due in late January, but letting teachers and PTA groups know about it now will afford them time to start making plans for 2020. Here is a link to our teachers’ page: https://www.
outerbankslighthousesociety. org/teachers.html where they can find a link to the grant on the left. There, they will also find a teachers’ resource to guide in teaching about NC’s lighthouses.
A video about our towers is also being developed and will be put on the website, https://www.
outerbankslighthousesociety. org/ , soon. Interested people may contact Bett Padgett, at email@example.com or 919-264-3075.
Yearly deadline is January 31.
