Bus Transportation Reimbursement:
Classes attending our Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument day and Deer Creek Center residential programs can apply in advance for reimbursement of their bus transportation costs through the Oregon Forest Resources Institute (OFRI). This form must be completed prior to your trip. OFRI provides reimbursements for programs that involve forest education efforts. When describing how the trip will enhance/extend classroom learning, we suggest that you use the following language:
For the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument: “Fall in the Field programs explore a range of forest ecosystems and their associated biodiversities.”
At Deer Creek Center, “Fall in the Field programs explore how the unique geology of the serpentine soils influences the plant and forest communities.”
Unfortunately, classes attending our hybrid programs through Outdoor School for All funding are not eligible to apply for bus reimbursement.
Outdoor School for All funding:
5th and 6th-grade groups that attend one of our hybrid programs are eligible to receive Outdoor School For All funding. Please visit their website to learn more about the application process.
