      All,

      The Sierra Club's Youth in Wilderness Project is providing funding to
      dramatically expand outdoor learning and wilderness opportunities for
      economically disadvantaged youth who would otherwise not have access to
      the outdoors.

      The Youth in Wilderness Project funds tax-deductible, non-profit
      organizations or schools that provide interactive, hands-on, experiential
      learning in outdoor settings to economically disadvantaged youth (usually,
      grades K-12).

      If any schools want to apply for this grant and need assistance, please
      contact us.

      Thanks

      man
