Grants to Colorado municipalities, counties, and park and recreation districts in partnership with schools or school districts to create outdoor learning and play environments and improve school playgrounds. Applicants must contact program staff prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended to support projects that are planned and designed by students, constructed on or adjacent to school grounds, and open to the general public outside school hours.
Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO), in partnership with Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), is requesting proposals for projects that seek to revitalize school playgrounds and outdoor learning environments across the state with an emphasis on opportunities for nature-based play and learning. The most competitive projects will be those that increase opportunities for outdoor education and play, reflect a participatory design process led by the students and supported by the local community.
Funding can be used to develop a new school yard and/or to enhance or improve existing school yards. Projects must include spaces for outdoor play and learning. Projects can include green schoolyards, natural playscapes, age specific play equipment, outdoor classrooms, learning gardens, waterplay features, climbing walls, walking paths, environmental education signage, and shade. Experiential environmental learning components include gardens, bioswales, wetlands, water features, weather stations and similar items. Projects that include natural components will likely be more competitive.
The project budget must include funding for signage that informs the community of the days and hours the school yard is open to the public.
