Montana Discovery Foundation has provided Snowschool programs to students and the general public in and around the Helena area for over 12 years. Each winter we go to 19 area schools and offer snowshoe excursions to all ages (including approximately 450 4th graders) usually in their school yards. We would like to provide bus transportation for students and get them outdoors for muscle-powered recreation on national forest lands
in the Helena area where there is generally more and better snow than in a school's backyard. Education about snow science, forest ecology and wildlife adaptations are more relatable in a forest setting.
The funds raised will be used for bus transportation and for the repair and replacement of our very hard-used snowshoes that are over 12 years old and are in need of some serious TLC.
