Education > Montana WILD Montana Wild Transportation & Lodging Grants

About the Program

We are out of funding for the 2023/24 school year. Applications for the 2024/2025 school year will be available in April. That funding can be utilized from August 2024 through June of 2025.

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 the 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.
