Shutdown forces cancellation of student environmental ed trips

Oct 8, 2013 by

Add this to the toll that the government shutdown is taking on people: Several environmental education programs in the greater Washington region have been canceled or altered because they were set in national parks that are now closed.

Thousands of students visit Piscataway National Park in Prince George’s and Charles counties each year on school trips to learn about the environment, history and agriculture through two local foundations, in cooperation with the National Park Service. October is the month these trips begin, and already hundreds of students have been impacted by program cancellations.
