Vail Valley rep. unveils nature education bill

Vail Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – An environmental literacy program would be created by a bill proposed by the Vail Valley’s state representative.

The program would make Colorado eligible for federal grant funds through the No Child Left Inside Act and establish a state grant program at the Department of Natural Resources that will ensure students can spend more time in the outdoors, says state Rep. Christine Scanlan.

“A good education and an appreciation of nature’s beauty are two of the most valuable things we can pass along to the next generation,” Scanlan says. “This bill will assure that all Colorado kids will be able to enjoy the unique beauty and fantastic recreational opportunities that are our state’s greatest assets.”
