We are hoping to have about 10 events for the year with about 30 students at each event. If there were more students, we will divide the lesson/talks/presentation to about 10-15 kids per presentation and rotate them from one to the other so presenters aren’t overwhelmed.
The focus of this project has been to locate youth from the most urban, economically distressed areas in San Antonio and we will be bringing them out here for field trips. The hope is they can learn and connect with Govt. Canyon SNA; a natural resource area they may not know about. We hope that this will build a bridge for the well-being of the youth involved and the future of TPWD. At the minimum, we hope that whomever comes out here, will at least take a new, happy or inspirational experience home with them.
