THE STORY:

A big part of our mission is to help educate people who live near the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument about the fascinating science and history of this part of southern Utah.

The Monument’s four visitors’ centers each have a different focus and different curriculum guides for schools: The center in Big Water, Utah, for example, focuses on amazing dinosaur finds. The center in Cannonville, Utah, focuses on the human history of the area. A Cannonville teacher who wants to teach the dinosaur program has to take the class to Big Water – a three-hour bus trip, and that’s only one way.

We are raising money for a project that will bring the focus of each visitors’ center to the classroom, no field trips necessary. We plan to create Discovery Boxes -- basically a field trip in a box -- for each visitors' center focus. The Cannonville teacher, for example, could order the paleontology box and have everything for the lesson right there in Cannonville.

Southern Utah is breathtaking, but it’s also remote, with long drives between our small towns. In a time of pricey gasoline and reduced school budgets, we think Discovery Boxes will help students learn about the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument’s vast resources.
