Fund a Bus

$0 of $10,000 raised

Help get kids out of the classroom and into nature!

A bus trip to The Arboretum can cost over $100 for FUSD schools, and more for schools further away. Teachers/students have to pay for field trip travel.

The Arb has initiated a campaign to make our standards-based, experiential programs available to more local youth. You can help by making a donation today.
