FWP is offering Montana schools (4th-12th grades) grant funds to visit the new Montana WILD - Education Center located at Spring Meadow Lake State Park in Helena, MT. The goal of this grant program is to assist “outlying” schools to come and learn at Montana WILD.

Purpose of grant

Montana WILD is a statewide facility. Our goal is to reach 4th-12th grades students statewide and provide them outdoor recreation and conservation education. The legislature helped us in achieving this goal by appropriating funds ($25,000/year) for outlying school districts to visit Montana WILD.


  • MT WILD Grant Program Description 2020-2021
  • Outlying school districts are 50+ miles/one way from MT Wild
