Schools receive funding for the great outdoors

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The students in over 250 school districts around the state, including several in Region 8, will have an opportunity to learn more about archery, fishing and other outdoor programs due to a recent grant, officials said.

The Arkansas Economic Development Commission Division of Rural Services presented $532,602 in grants to districts Jan. 9.

The funding comes from Arkansas Game and Fish Commission fines collected in counties from hunting and fishing violations, AEDC officials said.

In addition to learning about outdoor sports programs, students can also use the funding for indoor and outdoor habitats for animals, lab supplies or for field trips to go to nature centers around the state.
