Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area Gets Grant To Bring Students To Park

Posted on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 4:30am

The Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area has received a grant to bring hundreds of students, and family members to the park for ranger led educational programs.

The approximately $7,000 from the National Park Foundation will be used for those who might not otherwise get to see the recreation area. For many of the estimated 700 students who will be in the program, it will be the first time they visited a national park.

The Ticket To Ride program provides transportation, in-park educational programs, and meals.
