Pat Taeger Memorial Field Trip Fund
From animal signs to exploring the world of the pond, Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve offers a variety of fun and educational programs for school groups. Schools with financial limitations may be granted a program fee waiver; however, we need your help to take it one step further.
Transportation costs are often the biggest barrier for schools to send kids to places like Reinstein Woods. Our goal is to raise $1000 to provide transportation to Reinstein Woods for under-served schools.
Thanks to a bus grant, students from the Buffalo Academy of Science came every
June for three years to investigate pond animals at Reinstein Woods.
This special field trip fund was started in memory of beloved volunteer Pat Taeger. Pat worked as a teacher aide for Cheektowaga Central Schools. In spring 2015, she brought the special education class she worked with on a field trip to Reinstein Woods, making special arrangements for their transportation.
It is our hope that donations to the Pat Taeger Memorial Field Trip Fund will provide a lasting legacy to honor Pat’s memory and give children an opportunity they might not have otherwise.
