Spokane organizations receive $168K in grant funds to get kids outdoors, June 2, 2021

SPOKANE, Wash. — Washington Governor Jay Inslee announced $4.5 million in grant funding to get kids to explore the region’s parks and outdoor areas.

The ‘No Child Left Inside’ grants aim to improve outdoor education and recreation opportunities to under-served communities across the state.

“Kids need to get outside–for their physical, mental and spiritual health,” said Peter Mayer, director from Washington State Parks. “These grants help level the playing field by providing opportunities for so many who otherwise don’t have a way to experience the outdoors. We hope the grants also will help create a positive future for these kids.”
