The EnviroBus Buck Field Trip Grant Program is a transportation grant that will cover the costs associated with school bus transportation for excursions, offering students the opportunity to learn about environmental education using a hands-on approach during visits to sites which promote environmental stewardship.

Eligible educators must teach within the High Desert portion of San Bernardino County, the Palo Verde Valley of Riverside County or the High Desert region of North Los Angeles County, including the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale.

“Dream Sites”
Grant approval to MEEC-recommended host sites will be given first priority. However, “Dream Sites,” will be accepted and considered only after all eligible applications to MEEC selected host sites have been granted. Dream Sites are any location of the teacher’s choice not listed as a MEEC-recommended host site, that can be correlated to help meet state standards. General Rules & Guidelines still apply.

MEEC will begin accepting applications for the 2009/2010 school year on
August 1, 2009 ~ Closing Date: September 30, 2009

Applications can be completed and submitted online or downloaded then sent via standard mail or by fax.
